Featured on the August 12th, 2021 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- Some people just love to talk about the weather, and the record amount of late summer rainfall that is currently gracing Southern Arizona is a hot topic. Tony Paniagua interviews climate scientist Michael A. Crimmins, from the UA School of Environmental Science, to help put this year’s monsoon in perspective.
- Tucson has an ever-growing community of mushroom enthusiasts. A popular activity is braving the humid monsoon conditions to explore Mount Lemmon, where a huge variety of mushrooms can be found -- but only if you know where to look.
- And, meet actors To-Ree'-Nee' Wolf and Cynthia Jeffery, producer & director Susan Claassen, and Tony-nominated playwright Emily Mann. They are some of the artists behind the stage production Gloria: A Life. It’s a celebration of Gloria Steinem at the Invisible Theatre, exploring the things that guided her to become a life-long warrior for women's rights, social change and equality.
Invisible Theatre celebrates its 50th season with a return engagement of Gloria: A Life. It debuts on Wednesday, August 18th, and runs through Sunday, August 29th. Here is a link for the full schedule and details of Invisible Theatre’s COVID safety procedures.
