Steven Sater: Unbound

by Sheema Golbaba

Tony Award-winning Steven Sater has rocked his way into the Harvard community as script writer and lyricist of American Repertory Theater's Prometheus Bound, therock musical now running at Club Oberon. On Feb. 24 at the Adams House Lower Common Room, the poet, playwright, lyricist, television writer and screenwriter spoke with aspiring writers and artists and demystified not only his personal art but also the art of juxtaposing music and literature -- as he did with composer Duncan Sheik in the hit musical Spring Awakening. Here is a montage of Sater’s interaction with the admiring students.

Prometheus Bound, an adaptation of Aeschylus' play, runs through April 2 at Club Oberon. The production is directed by Diane Paulus with music by Serj Tankian.
