Laughter. Songs. Autism. F-Bombs.

"A" Train

Anne Torsiglieri and Risa Brainin join Maggie and Anna to discuss “A” Train, opening this weekend at Center Stage Theatre. Charles Donelan of the Santa Barbara Independent says it’s “simply the best solo show and quite likely the best original play of any kind to come out of Santa Barbara this decade, and it will undoubtedly hit hard when it hits home. The emotional impact of Torsiglieri’s performance cannot be overstated.”
