Mike Ross is Soulpepper’s “Slaight Family Director of Music, Resident Artist, Director, Performer, Actor”. It’s a long title, which is indicative of his many talents. His current project for Soulpepper Theatre is “The Promised Land: Steinbeck Through Song”, created by Mike, Esther Jun, and Sarah Wilson. He joined Jean Stilwell on “Classical Mornings” (Mike is on vacation) to chat about this production.
Listen to the interview here:
“The Promised Land” re-imagines the songs that embody John Steinbeck’s search for The Promised Land – Bruce Springsteen, Beyonce, Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, and others.
The Promised Land: Steinbeck Through Song is on now and runs until Saturday night (July 27) at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts in the Distillery District. Show info and tickets here.
