Thursday on The Front Row

We look at Oedipus3, the latest offering from one of Houston's newest cutting-edge theatre companies, the Nova Arts Project. We'll speak with the production's three directors, each of whom created a half-hour-long adaptation, up-dating, and staging of one portion of the ancient Greek Oedipus trilogy by Sophocles. . .

Also, on Thursday's show, Houston jazz singer Julia Olivarez, brings her band, The Neuromantics, into the studio to play a live set for us.  And,  we'll meet another local winner of the 2006 Scholastic Writing Competition; Janet Thielke, who graduated this Spring from Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, will read the opening chapter of her novel, Holy Waters at High Tide.

Join us each weekday afternoon for an up-close look at the Houston area arts scene on The Front Row.

KUHF's latest internet offering includes a weekly excerpt from our archive of local concert recordings. It's part of the new The Front Row Performance of the Week Podcast.
