Best-selling author Eoin Colfer is best known for his Artemis Fowl books that follow a 12 year old Irish criminal mastermind as he tries to harness the magic and high tech power of elves, fairies and other magical creatures. People who are familiar with Colfer’s witty and slightly wicked imagination may be surprised to learn that he has penned a heartwarming Christmas musical. It’s called Noel, and the production team behind this musical is based in Ames, Iowa.
During this Talk of Iowa interview, Colfer talks with host Charity Nebbe about the musical. Producer Michael Londra also joins the conversation.
Then, we hear about a new production from Combined Efforts Theatre. Zwicky’s Air features the story of a scientist desperate for discovery who nearly destroys the relationships and careers of those around him until he makes a new discovery in an unexpected place.
