From the Studio: Stage Left Theater presents "Disgraced"


Stage Left Theater in Spokane presents the Pulitzer Prize willing play Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar starting this Friday January 13 at 7:30pm.  This morning director Lance Babbitt and cast members Joe Mazzie, Jared Johnson, Aubrey Shimek Davis and Alex Edmonds joined Verne in the studio to talk about the timely and thought-provoking play which examines prejudice, faith and identity. Disgraced will run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through January 29. More information and tickets available from Stage Left Theater.

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.
