author Gregory Maguire

On this edition of The Arts Section, host Gary Zidek talks to New York Times bestselling author Gregory Maguire.  The Boston-based writer, who authored WICKED, is back with a new book that reimagines Wonderland.  Gary will also tell you about a new Chicago comedy show that’s one part improv, and one part zany Japanese game show.  It's called BATSU!  We’ll hear from Nashville-based singer song-writer Tommy Womack. And we've got the scoop on a new app that aims to help during those never-ending scrolling sessions when you’re trying to find something to watch on Netflix or Hulu.  And the Dueling Critics will join Gary with a new review.

Gary talked to the writer behind the novel WICKED, which became Broadway smash musical
