    It's 1967 and a 38-year-old writer from bohemian Greenwich Village commutes to Levittown, on Long Island in New York, to teach an adult-education creative writing class. He finds anything but the cookie-cutter lives he expected in this straight-laced community, as his students come to discover the power of storytelling to transform their lives. And one special student – a kindred spirit? or something more? – reawakens him to his own artistic impulses.

The Babylon Line is a new play by Richard Greenberg, directed by Terry Kinney for New York Stage and Film and Vassar College's Powerhouse Theatre season. The production runs tonight through July 12th and stars Josh Radnor and Leslie Bibb who join us to tell us more.
