Here's what we have on today's show:
Cultures clash on the border ... paging Culture Clash!
(Starts at 8:30)
Twenty years ago, the theater satire trio known as Culture Clash wrote and performed “Bordertown,” an examination of issues that were then roiling the region between California and Mexico. Now, the group revisits the topic in “Bordertown Now.” But this time the focus is along the Arizona border, where people both from Mexico and Latin America have migrated because of stricter enforcement by law enforcement authorities in California and Texas. They battle conditions in the brutal Sonoran desert, as they try to also steer clear of drug traffickers. It’s an example of the challenging material being programmed by new leadership at the Pasadena Playhouse.
