The Desert Scene: Dan Gelfand
After the Palm Springs Follies closed, Mark Christopher and Dan Gelfand desired to write a musical extravaganza for Palm Springs. Mid-Century Moderns was the result of years of creative sessions by the pool. A musical about the life of a housewife who goes from frumpy to fabulous in the "center of modernity of Palm Springs". Dan Gelfand comes to The Desert Scene to talk about his background, the musical, and its usage of 1960s music to tell its feminist story.
