Check out the video version of ‘The Munro Review’

Last month I introduced you to the first episode of “The Munro Review,” an arts talk show in collaboration with the Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC). Now my second episode focusing on November is streaming. My guests this month are Thomas-Whit Ellis of Fresno State talking about “Native Son,” which continues through Saturday, Nov. 4; and Tony Carranza of, which is open for ArtHop tonight (Thursday, Nov. 2).

I also offer capsule reviews and shout-outs about Fresno City College’s “American Idiot,” StageWorks Fresno’s “Little Shop of Horrors,” Rei Hotoda’s inaugural performance as new music director of the Fresno Philharmonic, the impending departure of Amy Querin, and the opening of Fulton Street. Plus: I offer a preview of the November arts scene, including Joan Schulze’s lecture at the Fresno Art Museum, Ballet Hispanico at the Saroyan Theatre, lots of local theater (from “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” at College of the Sequoias to “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” in Selma) and a concert by the Fresno Master Chorale.

While we’re talking about CMAC, here’s one more shout-out: Don’t miss CMAC Fest, a big celebration tonight (Thursday, Nov. 2) in conjunction with ArtHop:

I can’t wait to try out the virtual reality demos.
