From the Studio: Modern Theater presents "Other Desert Cities"

  Today members of the cast and stage management from Modern Theater's "Other Desert Cities" visited the studio and talked with Verne about their show, which opens this Friday, September 25th at 7:30pm in Spokane and runs until October 12th.  This dramatic play was written by Jon Robin Baitz and was nominated for multiple Tony awards and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.  Marianne McLaughlin--who plays Silda--and Sarah Miller--who plays Brooke--performed an excerpt from the show, and Jeremy Whittington, the stage manager joined them in talking about the work.  Tickets are on sale now.

Verne Windham got his start at Spokane Public Radio 20 years ago. “I came in to complain and they hired me.” He’s now the Program Director, as well as the host of Morning Classical and Concert of the Week. When choosing music for Morning Classical, Verne likes to keep the agenda as broadly defined as possible. For Concert of the Week, he focuses on the best of recent local performances, mostly classical in nature. For many years, Verne was also the conductor of the Spokane Youth Orchestra. He enjoys gardening, his vintage car and playing French horn.
