Fixing Charlotte's Damaged Trees and Alice Ripley


Exhibit A: Crepe Murder Part One: Fixing Charlotte's Damaged Trees Charlotte's trees seem to have been under attack this summer, whether from the damaging storms we've had recently, or due to massive over-pruning ("crepe murder" sound familiar to anyone?). City Arborist Don McSween joins us to talk about the best ways to protect and preserve our city's trees, both from Mother Nature, and from our own misguided over-pruning. Guest Don McSween - Charlotte's City Arborist Alice Ripley in Next To Normal Part Two: Alice Ripley Tony Award-winner Alice Ripley joins us in the studio to talk about her nearly 20 years on and off Broadway. We'll find out what it's like to spend such a long time playing Diana, her character in Next To Normal, who is a suburban house wife suffering from bipolar disorder, and about her choice to continue her award-winning role on Broadway on tour. We'll also hear about her life away from theatre, as a rock musician.
