The Morini Strad

In 1995, celebrated violinist Erica Morini passed away quietly, never knowing that her beloved Stradivarius was mysteriously stolen from her New York City apartment just before she died.  Morini’s relationship with her violin and the man she hired to restore it is dramatized in The Morini Strad, a new play by Peabody-winning playwright Willy Holtzman.  Bob talks with Holtzman and Brian Skarstad, the real-life violin restorer who worked with Morini.  The Morini Strad is at New York City’s Primary Stages through April 28th.
