A behind-the-scenes look at how Nine Lives, a multi-voice biography of New Orleans, is being made into a musical, with performances and discussion by author Dan Baum (who reported on post-Katrina New Orleans for The New Yorker), songwriter Paul Sanchez, lyricist/book writer Colman DeKay, singer Arsene DeLay, singer Deborah Davis, and Tony Award-winning actor Michael Cerveris (In the Next Room-or the Vibrator Play, Fringe).

"Baum's technique brings to mind Robert Altman's film Nashville...He adroitly moves his subjects through parades, prison, divorces, sex changes, fancy balls and gun brawls" - The Washington Post
