Tony nominated Broadway lyricist and playwright Bill Russell was born in Deadwood and raised in Spearfish. His Broadway writing debut was with “Side Show” (music by Henry Krieger). This month he is working with the Black Hills Playhouse in Custer State Park as guest artist for the production of “Pageant.” He joins Dakota Midday for a conversation about art, theater, and the journey from the Black Hills to Broadway.
