This month, Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit concludes its 20th anniversary season with a revival of the hit musical "Now That I Can Dance — Motown 1962." Written by Rick Sperling, Mosaic's founder and CEO, the concept took root two decades ago while on a visit to the Motown Historical Museum. There he saw a picture of four teenage girls and noted their youthful exuberance and playful energy mirrored that of Mosaic's young performers. For Rick, that photo of The Marvelettes was tangible proof that it was possible for today's Detroit-area young people to change the world, just as the women in that photo had. In today's episode, host Barton Bund sits down with Sperling to discuss the process of creating "Now That I Can Dance" and what the next 20 years might hold for the internationally acclaimed Mosaic Youth Theatre.
