written and directed by george c. wolf, and choreographed by savon gloverrer. >> the most challenging thing about creating a musical is making sure the buoyancy maintains no matter what. even when you have something like anytime west side story" or "sweeney todd" the energy of buoyancy has to push it all the way through. all the way to the curtain. there is a story that huby blake tells that george gershwin lifted the note of "i got rhythm" from a pit player after sheeg "shuffle along." he lifted those notes and he stole them. i'm not saying what he did. i'm not saying that he didn't. >> rose: somebody said it. >> huby plac said it. it became an interesting thing. and it becomes a tap dance that savon choreographed of him playing the instrument, and him dancing out the fact in theory somebody lifted his notes. and he becomes-- gilbert said "shuffle along" is filled with joyous rage and this number becomes a manifestation of that. >> rose: how about this? this is from chris jones writing in "the chicago tribune": >> it's extraordinary. it's an extraordinary statement. when i first met

george w bush's legacy and he talked a lot about restoring america's standing in the world. obama came into office determined to extricate united states from what he saw as george w bush's wars of choice in the mideast. how is it different between what obama wanted to do in terms of his precedence legacy, his predecessors and what trump is doing now >> i think the difference is that president obama didn't come in determined actually to tear down specific programs that president bush had put in place, he came intending to move in a direction. even then he didn't move as radically as i think he had advertised in the campaign. he kept the drone strikes, he expanded them. kept a lot of the counter terrorism policies surveillance, military commissions, guantanamo remained open even though he talked about wanting to close it. and on foreign policy there was a little bit more of a continuation in some ways different courses but not a radical change >> i know it's pretty impossible in way to have a conversation about barack obama these days that isn't a conversation about donald trump. le

using flowers came from a book that i found by a gardener of a duke named george st. claire in the 1800s and he was doing experiments on grasses and darwin cited it in his theory of revolution. and i found these books where specimens had lasted 200 years, perfectly preserved, and in the world of digital data that feels temporary or easily dispose of, that this thing remained. i wanted to do something with those dried or barium specimens and speak about these notions of survival. to me it was so much about that. in this book, those specimens stood alongside his data recordings. and from that point i went off to find things like that picture at the munich conference of hitler, mussolini and chamberlain. >> rose: you said to someone else, "i was interested in the idea of these men who felt they could control the evolution of the world with their language and assertions and flimsy paperwork they are about to sign and nature is this castrated decorative thing that sits between them." >> yes, and there are sculptures in the work designed based on plant presses, where all of the 36 agreem

, a secretary of state. you know and i know, say, go back to jim baker. when jim baker was george h.w. bush's secretary of state. everyone around the world knew when jim baker talked he was speaking with the full backing and thfort president. i'm not so sure that when rex tillerson speaks people are going to be able to assume that, if donald trump is tweeting certain things or various people at the white house are saying or doing things that are inconsistent with what the message is supposed to be. >> rose: because it's in the nature of his d.n.a. to be hands on and it's okay to tell people what he thinks. >> another thing. donald trump if you read the inaugural speech, the entire intellectual assumption of the speech is that the united states is getting ripped off by the world-- allies aren't doing enough, trade is bad furst, we're spending too much in the fine, it's what got himt got elected. it doesn't mean it's necessarily going to work out. it doesn't mean it's necessarily constructive. >> rose: we're seeing this week he's doing the things he said he would do. >> absolutely.

republican party when you have some criticism of the president-- jeff flake, john mccain, by george bush, without naming the president and, of course, bob corker. what does this mean, if anything, today in washington? >> well, charlie, it's the republican parties. and we're see more clearly on the national stage the split that we've been seeing in the house for a long time, that we looked at so carefully during health care. and now we're seeing the trump and bannon part of the party, and we're seeing the more traditional part of the party where so many senators now saying publicly what others are saying privately behind the scenes. but, charlie, here's the twist, and here's why a lot of the coverage this week has been very misleading. the twist is that all those senators and all those people-- republicans around the country that think privately the criticisms that mccain and corker and flake and bush and others are saying publicly, they're going to keep it private. trump is strong in their states, strong in their districts, and so, donald trump is now more commanding of the party than he

capitalism, and it's the intersection of those two that are creating the volatility. >> rose: george saurus said it reminds him of 2008 that china has a crisis and will challenge financial markets. >> china's economy has been slowing for some time. if you look right now, fixed investment growth, which was 50% of the economy, was growing 35%. today it's growing 10 and stabilizing. that's not new news. what's new news is this move towards the liberalization of the currency in the capital market. so i think you have to separate economic growth from capital markets. we have been in a period with all this quantitative easing around the world where central banks have essentially created a great environment for wall street but it hasn't been great for main street. what's shifting is we're probably going to see an okay environment for main street but it's going to be tougher for wall street. >> rose: we turn to our white house watch. gun control was very much on the present agenda this week both in a town hall on cnn and in an earlier speech at the white house announcing new measures to tigh

invisibility of homelessness. he plays george hammon, a man living on the street. >> well, it was a miracle it got made because this is not an easy subject. >> rose: and you had it for what? >> i bought this script-- i lose track-- 12 years ago, something like that. and knew there was a movie in here that i wanted to make. and it wasn't obvious in the script what to do with this. but there was just something that i could feel, and there-- i was flailing around to describe what i saw in this thing. and i saw a review in the "new york times" of a book by a homeless guy, "cadillac man," and it was called "land of lost souls." and i bought the book, and read it, and i said, well, this is the way to make a movie. this is it. it's not-- it's not sentimental. it's not drama in that usual sense. one thing evidence very happy about when i saw the first rough cut. roaren wanted space to do this. i produced a movie and we worked incredibly closely on this, like soul brothers on this. he finally showed me a rough cut he was happy with, and i was delighted for many reasons-- one, it really was t

? >> well, he probably would have turned back to george orwell, who he loved so much, and the very fact of the matter is, orwell's books are back in circulation. and the one consistency of this contrarian, christopher hitchins, our friend, was his disdain of authoritarianism in any guise. and he would go after-- whether it's henry kissinger, the catholic church-- he did not care if he smelled authoritarianism. so i think the moves of donald trump to suppress the-- suppress journalists would drive hitchins mad. >> although, it's hard for me ton where he would have come down on this election. lesli, what do you think? >> i think christopher would have been appalled by trump, but he also would have said, "who gave us trump? hillary clinton." i mean, christopher was not, as you know, a big supporter of hillary clinton. >> no. >> and feel that he would have said it's-- it's because of the way they ran that campaign that we ended up with donald trump. i think he would have laid a lot of responsibility at her feet. >> what do you think he would say about the people who support donald trump versus

the war on terror and he ended up acting, a lot of people think, acting like george bush. he used drone strikes air, massive surveillance state. he went beyond bush in certain respects, like overseeing a crackdown on leaks . >> rose: all of this call you to say obama is no dove on national security. >> he certainly is no dove but the question is how did we get here? what happened? something not as clear at the time of the bush years. there were two very different strands of criticism of what bush was doing and cheney was doing after 9/11. there was a rule of law critique and a civil liberties critique. the civil liberty critique says things like warrantless surveillance are inherently wrong. the state should not have the power to prosecute people in military commissions instead of traditional trials against individual rights. the rule of law critique is sort of agnostic about these policies, maybe except for torture, which is always illegal. >> rose: take the four lawyers profiled in the "new york times" having to do with osama bin laden. >> osama bin laden raised all these legal

shapers of american history, both political-- george washington-- and businessmen, like john rockefeller and j.p. morgan. of his biography, "alexander hamilton was the base for the broadway hit "hamilton." now he turns his attention to ulysses s. grant. >> the other people i have written about i felt were built for success, and even as i was researching hir childhood, you knew they were going to soar into the wild blue yornd. this is a completely different story, this tremendous pathos in this story. it's a man who was repeatedly defeated by circumstance, and there was nothing ordained about his success. >> rose: lacked ambition. >> yes, in fact, when he graduated from west point, his highest ambition was to be an assistant math professor at the academy-- not, mind you, a full professor but an assistant math professor. >> rose: how did he ascend the beginnings? how did he get on the road to greatness? >> finally 1860, 38 years old, he goes to his father and asks if he can work as a clerk in his father's leather goods store in illinois, and he goes to work junior to his two younger brothe

republican pol techs advising richard nixon, george h.w. bush, and donald trump. but it will be his creation of the conservative and controversial fox news channel and the subsequent transformation of cable news for which he will be remembered in part. here is roger ailes at the table. >> i think it all comes down to people and a vision. >> rose: so what's the vision? >> well, the vision is that there are some people underserveed by news in this country, that they don't necessarily agree-- they think there's a big rubber stamp. there are certain stories that aren't being covered and so on. and so we ceepped of created-- kind of created people like bill o'reilly-- we didn't create him in the sense bill has been around for 25 years, but we gave him a forum to do his thing in prime time. for several centuries, scotland was ruled from london. parliament hadn't met here since 1707. recently, the scots voted to bring their parliament home, and london didn't object. in the year 2000, edinburgh resumed its position as home of scotland's parliament. scotland's strikingly modern parliament bu
