The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Noah Michelson, Executive Editor at The Huffington Post's Gay Voices, returns to The Signorile Show today to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines in the LGBT blog-o-sphere. You can also follow Noah on twitter.

For years, Bryan Doerries, a theater director and translator has led an innovative theater project that stages productions of ancient Greek tragedies for current and former soldiers, and those who suffer from PTSD, addiction, and abuse.   The project began after Bryan experienced a series of tragic events in his own life and in that moment of need he felt as if the Greeks were speaking directly to him, their thoughts on fate, suffering, life and death became more immediate and comforting to him than anything that our modern culture could offer.  In his new memoir The Theater of War: What Ancient Greek Tragedies Can Teach Us Today Bryan details his personal journey and that of those he has helped with the redemptive and therapeutic potential of this classical, timeless art and he joins me today to talk all about the book and the project.
