Claire Wellin and Scott Stangland, company members in Goodman Theatre's A Christmas Carol and members of the band Youth in a Roman Field, are fueled by:

The act and the art of telling stories Claire: I'm fascinated by the radio as a form of storytelling and communication in general. The world of sound that opens up when the listener is disconnected from a visual of any sort is amazing. One of my favorite programs is the Third Coast Audio Festival's Re:Sound. A must-listen episode is "Book Odds," their ShortDocs challenge charging participants to create stories titled after and incorporating music by the Books. It's wildly creative.

Scott: Whether watching, performing, reading, or making them up in my own head, stories play a central role in my life and work. Something that inspires me is the collective of storytellers at 2nd Story. Usually found at Webster's Wine Bar, these talented writers/performers develop personal stories that are clever and witty, sometimes heartbreaking, but always beautiful and engaging. Over appetizers and a glass of wine? Perfect.
