Michael Wolff Trio
In the summer of 2015, a grueling and often bewildering four-year battle with rare cancer had the acclaimed pianist-composer Michael Wolff on the ropes. He'd fallen into a coma at a New York hospital, and the prognosis had moved from doubtful to defeated. His sons Nat and Alex, in the midst of their ascent as two of the most talented actors of their generation, had returned home to be with their father and try to comfort him. They played guitars and sang at his bedside, tapping into the sweet, winsome gifts that had made the Wolffs a famous musical family nearly a decade earlier, via the hit TV series The Naked Brothers Band. At one point, as Wolff was being cared for by his wife, the award-winning actress, director, and writer Polly Draper, a doctor asked her if she'd signed a Do Not Resuscitate order. Through the haze of drugs and debilitating illness, Wolff interjected. Lifting his head up, he growled: "Resuscitate me!"
