Prairie Village Post, Rep. Rooker featured on KCUR’s Statehouse Blend. We were honored to be one of the panelists on this week’s edition of Statehouse Blend, which delved into the prolonged maneuvering in Topeka to close the state’s massive budget hole, why northeast Johnson County votes more moderate than the rest of the county, and how two factions developed among leaders in the Shawnee Mission area around the block grant school funding issue. Fairway Rep. Melissa Rooker was the featured legislator, and was joined by host Sam Zeff and new KCUR reporter Kyle Palmer. [Kansas Rep. Melissa Rooker — Statehouse Blend]

Broadway World — Kansas City reviews Barn Players production of Six Degrees of Separation. Steve Wilson of Broadway World – Kansas City this past weekend penned a review of The Barn Players’ production of Six Degrees of Separation, calling attention to director David Martin’s creative scene changes. “Fascinating and visionary are two ways to describe Martin’s use of video,” Wilson writes. “The production flows from scene to scene without the momentary stopping of the play to change scenery.” Six Degrees of Separation will run at the Mission theatre through June 14.
