Henry I. Schvey, Professor of Drama & Comparative Literature, was recently interviewed for Washington University's podcast series Hold That Thought. In the interview, titled "Courting the Muse," Professor Schvey discusses how his high school intrigue for the paintings of Austrian expressionist Oskar Kokoschka turned into a PhD dissertation, then a play based on Kokoschka's life and his love affair with Alma Mahler. That play, Kokoschka: A Love Story, was produced by the Performing Arts Department in 2007.
