Buffalo, NY – Jim and Tony talk about Waiting for Lefty, the Clifford Odets play staged by the Subversive Theatre Collective at the New Phoenix Theatre. These is some audience interaction, and the setting is a 1930s union meeting hall. Jim's dad was a union teamster, and he identifies with many of the issues raised. Also, we hear about how the stage version of To Kill a Mockingbird compares with the classic movie, and the book. Plus, a listing of other stage presentations, including The Angelina Project, which was featured by WBFO's Joyce Kryszak earlier this week.
