Across America, gentrification is pricing people out of the communities they grew up in. Today, we look at alternatives to avoid raising the cost of living in existing neighborhoods.

Then, we learn how Jamie Sanders, the lead actor in the KC Rep's latest play about a young boy with autism, forged a connection with his character through his own experience with Tourette syndrome. 

Guests:

The Kansas City Repertory Theatre will present performances of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time from Friday, January 26 through Sunday, February 18. For ticketing and more information, visit KCRep.org.
