More Information

A presentation-play about artists, art school and all the things art cannot do. Can artists really save the world? What good is a symphony when your city is underwater? And how did I go to music school for 4 years, but I still don't understand jazz? HTLTJ is part music theory lesson, part rumination on the limitations of conservatory training, part call to action to artists of any kind to really consider what their art is doing for the world around them.
