Open Source RVA presents:

On Friday’s edition of Open Source RVA, heard at noon on WRIR, we talk about the future of Gallery5, one of Richmond’s established creative hotspots. Gallery5 board members Parker Galore and Prabir Mehta, and operations manager Rivanna Youngpool, talk about the new six-month lease they’ve signed and their capital campaign to buy the historic building that’s been their home from the beginning. The 5 is also hosting a big 13th anniversary party tonight, with music, burlesque, puppetry, art… and fire. We’ll also talk about two special movie related events coming up – James Parrish of the Bijou Film Center fills us in on a special Byrd Theatre screening of the dazzling pro-communist documentary, I am Cuba, on April 15, and Andrew Blossom comes by to tell co-host Kate Andrews about the special Movie Club Richmond showing of “My Uncle is a Zombie” and “Night of the Living Dead” slated for Strange Matter on April 22. All of that, plus another edition of Curtain Call, our bi-weekly look at Richmond’s theater scene produced by the Richmond Theatre Critic’s Circle. This week, Jerry Williams sits down with the director (Mark Lerman) and the primary actor (Landon Nagel) of Firehouse Theatre’s production of “An Oak Tree,” SAVE YOURSELF AN AISLE SEAT! Open Source RVA happens every Friday at noon on WRIR and http://wrir.org.
