Publisher Description

Actor B.D. Wong and film director John Waters on this edition of Fresh Air. B.D. Wong has starred on Broadway in M. Butterfly, and in the TV series Law & Order: SVU, and HBO's Oz. He's the author of the new book: Following Foo (the electronic adventures of the Chestnut Man). It's about the premature birth of his twin sons in August 2000. The babies were born three months early to a surrogate mother. Wong and his partner, Richie were the parents. The twins suffered a rare medical disorder. One of them died shortly after birth, and the other twin, Jackson Foo, weighing less than three pounds was in neonatal intensive care for three months. At the time Wong began an email correspondence with family and friends on Jackson Foo's progress. Those emails are collected in the new book. The Broadway musical Hairspray was the big winner this week at the Tony Awards. It won awards for best direction, score, book and costume. Hairspray is based on Waters' 1988 film of the same name (his first mainstream studio film). (Broadcast Date: June 11, 2003)
