September 28th through the 30th, the LGBT Film Festival returns to the Neon Movie Theater in downtown Dayton.  In this sneak-peek interview, WYSO Weekend host, Jerry Kenney, talks with Jonathan McNeal, film festival curator, and manager of the Neon, about this year's selections.

This interview will air on WYSO Weekend Sunday, September 23rd.

So many things are going on….can you take a long break??? Now there is a play called Gem of the Ocean. This is one of August Wilson's famed "Pittsburgh Cycle," ten plays about residents of that city's Hill District. It's a mixture of fantasy and harsh reality, as 285-year old Aunt Ester leads a community for whom slavery is an all-too-vivid memory.  Visit humanrace theatre.org.
