The Train They Call the City

After the Hurricane Katrina disaster, I thought to myself, I wonder what it would be like to be in downtown New Orleans at night right now.  Since there’s no power, would you see the stars reflecting off the buildings more clearly than ever before?  Would you hear people screaming almost nonstop, or would it be eerily silent?  Would the buildings seem like icebergs in the sea, or would the stars reflect off of the windows and make it look like someone was home?  So this is the play that sort of stemmed out of that.

  1. morgan, I read the play last night and thought it had some stunning moments in it. The use of the song and some of the interpersonal moments were arresting. Good work.
