KCUR 89.3

Thirty years. That's how much experience the trio of actors starring in a new Kansas City Actors Theatre production have ... each. They tell us about the challenges of sustaining an acting career in the Midwest. We also learn about the prevalence of over-incarceration, and a Missouri bill that would eliminate some mandatory minimum sentences. This week's Local Listen features Isaac Cates & Ordained.

Kathleen Warfel, David Fritts, and Jan Rogge star in 'My Old Lady,' which runs from January 11 to January 29, on City Stage at Union Station. For ticketing information go to KCActors.org

As a host and contributor at KCUR, I seek to create a more informed citizenry and richer community. I want to enlighten and inspire our audience by delivering the information they need with accuracy and urgency, clarifying what’s complicated and teasing out the complexities of what seems simple. I work to craft conversations that reveal realities in our midst and model civil discourse in a divided world. Follow me on Twitter @ptsbrian or email me at brian@kcur.org.
