The Talking Band, an experimental theater company that has been championed by New York critics since their first production in 1975, comes to the Puffin Cultural Forum with their new project The Peripherals.  “A traveling subterranean indie rock concert” that tells the story of musicians Sluice and Suzy Q as they tour with their band, The Peripherals has been called “a celebration of the impulse to make art on your own terms” by, and “rollicking and fun” by New York Theatre Review.  State of the Arts talks with founding Talking Band members Ellen Maddow and Paul Zimet, winners of fifteen Obie Awards.

Produced by Christopher Benincasa for State of the Arts, 2013.
