Thursday on “City Lights with Lois Reitzes”:

  • 1:12: Atlanta transgender actor Scott Turner premiered his one-man show at 7 Stages in 2007, called “Becoming A Man in 127 Easy Steps.” And he is back at the theatre this weekend and next filming that show. He joined producer Myke Johns in our studios to talk about it.
  • 23:22: Funding for the arts is always a major concern here in the metro area. Now, 45 Atlanta arts organizations have been awarded the Arts Innovation and Management Program grant offered by Bloomberg Philanthropies. We spoke with Kate Levin, who oversees the arts program, about what exactly the program is and how it works.
  • 35:50: One person’s trash is another person’s treasure or in this case, another person’s art supplies. This coming weekend, a partnership of architects and interior designers are holding a sort of rummage sale with that intent. Producer Myke Johns was at last year’s event and has the story.
  • 41:26: Dad’s Garage Theatre Company welcomes back Colin Mochrie, who you may know from his years in the cast of Whose Line Is It Anyway? or from his appearances on THIS show — we believe this brings us to three. Colin joined us by phone while Dad’s artistic director Kevin Gillese dropped by our studios.
