WBFO Brief June 11, 2021

If it’s Friday, you know today’s WBFO Brief features Theater Talk, with Anthony Chase and Peter Hall -- talking this week about dinner theater's debut (sort-of) during continued COVID restrictions. Wander with reporter Karen DeWitt through the usually busy halls of the NYS Capitol where COVID shutdowns have kept lobbyists and activists on the outside.

Also, hear a debate between two of the three candidates for Buffalo Mayor (India Walton and LeCandice Durham) running in the Democratic party primary on June 22.
