Open Source RVA presents:

PACKED WITH GOODNESS On today’s edition of Open Source RVA, author Dale Brumfield talks about his forthcoming book on the Virginia State Penitentiary, and the Feb. 24 dedication of a new marker commemorating the formidable prison, which stood in Richmond for nearly 200 years. We also speak with sustainability expert Anthony Flaccavento, the author of “”Building a Healthy Economy from the Bottom Up.” He’ll be appearing in town on Feb. 22 for two separate talks — at the University of Richmond and the Richmond Public Library — promoting sustainable and eco-friendly economic development in the changing political landscape. The RVA Dirt girls, Melissa Vaughn and Jessse Perry, bring us another blow-by-blow account of Richmond City Council’s Monday meeting with their Quick and Dirty Council Report, and we unveil another installment of Curtain Call, our biweekly segment on Richmond’s theater scene produced by the Richmond Theater Critics Circle. This week, Sifter’s Jerry Williams and Style Weekly’s Rich Griset review the Firehouse Theatre’s production of “The Boatwright” and TheatreLab’s “Grand Concourse.” All of that plus Montrece Hill’s overview of bills considered, killed and passed in the Virginia General Assembly. IT’S TOO MUCH SHOW! Find out for yourself on Friday at 2PM on WRIR 97.3 FM and http://wrir.org
