The Sound of Applause celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
As part of ideastream's Be Well series on Addiction today Dee Perry speaks with former addict Dr. E about turning her life around with music. Plus we meet Obie-award-winning playwright Larry Kramer about his Tony-winning play The Normal Heart onstage starting this week for Ensemble Theater. David C. Barnett tells a group of teens in suburban Akron who have found great inspiration in an unlikely teacher. And we take another Road Trip through the great state of Ohio.
