“The Interrogator” – the full episode
New Musicals Inc. is proud to launch the second episode of SO PROUDLY WE HAILED, the musical webseries honoring veterans in their own words.
“The Interrogator” is based on the experience of veteran Elaine Little, an interrogator who once grilled the only female prisoner in Bagram on charges of terrorism. The episode has music and lyrics by Joshua H. Cohen; and features performer Megan Rees.
For this webseries, New Musicals Inc. has paired veteran honorees with an artistic team comprised of a composer, lyricist, director, and dramaturg, and then helped to shape their story into a short musical retelling in a digital platform.
This project is hosted by New Musicals Inc. This activity is supported in part by generous grants from: the Helen and Jose Colton Foundation; the Peter Glenville Foundation; the Anonymous Fund (Marin County); and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
To see an interview with veteran Elaine Little; an interview with performer Megan Rees, to learn more about the project, and to view future episodes as they are released, visit www.nmi.org/veterans
