Bill Murray, Jan Vogler & Friends take the stage during this year's Festival Napa Valley
Written by Jack Lipson
Actor Bill Murray and musicians Jan Vogler, Mira Wang and Vanessa Perez are exploring a great realm of theater through the aptly titled vocal arts series New Worlds. Constructed from classics of the past, this series includes tales from Italy, failed attempts of love in France, passages from Mark Twain, and more. Throughout the performance is a wondrous fusion of comedy, art and music, audience involvement and brilliant storytelling. While viewing and hearing each artist come together and play, a glorious symphony begins, giving stronger meaning and significance to every anecdote. The North American tour of New Worlds—an immediate classic with a newly released album—will foster all forms of literature and fine art for years to come.
