Karl is a performing songwriter with a variety of groups and teaches private music lessons. With his former band, The Graverobbers, he recorded 5 albums of his original songs.

Did you miss me? "Stage Right" returns today after a two-week hiatus that included a trip to Toronto to see Angela Lansbury in "Blythe Spirit." We'll talk about that production and then read a short play by a conservative playwright (Hank Kimmel, who will be on with us next week!). We'll also speculate on current events and what plays we should expect to see in the coming months/years. So much to do; so little time. But please join us, call in, or write to us (firstname.lastname@example.org). Remember: life is short; be conservative!
Today's episode of "Stage Right," the show that seeks the conservative voice in theatre, we are pleased to welcome playwright Hank Kimmel.

We are honored and thrilled to have as our guest on today's episode of "Stage Right" Mr. David Marcus. David is a playwright and blogger who has been featured in "The Federalist," a web magazine focused on culture, politics, and religion. David's blogs have discussed, quite rationally, the lack of conservative voices in theatre and what we can do about it. He was also a playwright represented at the Republican Theater Festival in 2012. Be sure to join me for what promises to be an enlightening discussion with a man who shares our cause!
Tonight's segment of Center Stage will spotlight "Hot Topics" in our world of news. We will look at updates in the Eric Garner case. Many are seeing striking similarities in the NYPD cases involving Eric Garner and Irving Mizell. Both Garner and Mizell died while in the custody of the NYPD.
Hot topics will also look at the new trend with kids called the "fire challenge," where kids are intentionally setting themselves on fire with accelerants like alcohol and hand santizer. Why are many of our youth entertained with games like the "fire challenge" and the "knock-out game" that involve danger and possible loss of life.
Our panel will also discuss why Saskpower in Canada is removing 105,000 recently installed smart meters. Do we all have reason for concern.
Lastly, we will be looking at disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 and the alleged crash of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, are the two connected

He is a playwright, an actor, a director, and the managing director of the Evolution Theatre Company, a Columbus theatre company featuring LGBT themes.

I thought I'd have a little fun on "Stage Right" today and ask my listeners what theatrical pieces of art will the left concoct in order to showcase their love for Obama, Iranian mullahs, and those who disregard religious conviction. Or, conversely, to showcase those they loathe: Christians, Israel, white males, people who earn a living, etc. Join me today as I read the clever entries I received via Facebook. We'll also look at Hank Kimmel's play "Class Dismissed" and continue our discussion of David Marcus' recent article in The Federalist. Please listen in!
