[Doug Carpenter, Poetic License and Daniel Okulitch]
Four-time Emmy Award winning composer Glen Roven is a lucky man. The composer of "The Runaway Bunny" and a magnificent violin concerto just recorded a CD of poetry featuring two popular barihunks, Daniel Okulitch and Douglas Carpenter. Roven is spearheading a project called "Poetic License" just in time for National Poetry Month. The recording on GPR Records features 103 celebrities reading their favorite poems.
Douglas Carpenter chose Walt Whitman's "To What You Said" and Daniel Okulitch chose Hoagland's "Self Improvement." Some of the others on the disc include Jason Alexander, Christine Baranski, Zoe Caldwell, Tyne Daly, Lauren Flanigan, Patti LuPone, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kathleen Turner and Michael York. The CD will be available on iTunes and at Amazon on April 2.
