“There’s so much good stuff out there that I sometimes get immobilized, like a rabbit just sitting there quivering because I can’t possibly read it all,” he adds. In this case, the combination of stories and readers is sure to make How Does Your Garden Grow? a seasonal winner for Stories on Stage. “There’s a really romantic story; there’s some funny stuff; there’s one about a contract killer; and we’re doing some poems. It’s just kind of a spring thing. And I’ve got to say, I’m a believer.”
One of the highlights will be Kathleen Chalfant (fresh off a role on House of Cards) reading “The Lady Gardener.” “I think if I hadn’t had her, I might have picked another story,” Powell admits.
