Marty Beller is the amazing drummer for They Might Be Giants. Shouldn’t that be enough? Well, it’s not: Marty also composes film and TV scores, and is currently music director for a terrific play called “The Total Bent.” The fact that his creative process is so painful illustrates how high his standards are for his art: he thinks art’s ambition should be no less than to throttle us.
Marty Beller’s play is called “The Total Bent” and is playing for much of June at the Public Theater in NYC.
