This Sunday at the National Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, you have a chance to catch a unique event. Valley musician Mark Mulcahy has teamed up with cartoonist Ben Katchor for A Checkroom Romance, an illustrated opera. Other Valley musicians are also starring in the show: Ken Mauri, Flora Reed, and Dave Trenholm.
Mark Mulcahy tells us where the idea came from, the process of writing an illustrated opera, and why they couldn’t perform it at one of his favorite spaces.
