Who’s on board for “Living With London” next Monday at 5pm? None other than award-winning American dramatist, screenwriter and for the last 38 years London resident Martin Sherman! Martin rose to fame in 1979 with the production of his ground-breaking play “Bent,” adapted for a major motion picture in 1997 with Clive Owen, Ian McKellen and Mick Jagger. As well as his many career highlights (a Pulitzer Prize, a Tony, an Olivier Award etc), Martin will be sharing his London loves, London secrets - and things that make him go “hmmmm!” with hosts Derek Taylor and Simon Carter. ⠀ #livingwithlondon ⠀ #resonancefm
