Now streaming: New episode of ‘The Munro Review on CMAC’ features stars of Selma’s ‘SpongeBob,’ Diana Marcum and ‘Janka’

I┬árounded up a great lineup of guests on the newest episode of “The Munro Review on CMAC,” my arts TV talk show. Here’s the show:

Here’s the lineup:

Diana Marcum — former Fresno Bee reporter, current Los Angeles Times reporter, always a Pulitzer Prize-winner — talks about her second book, “The Fallen Stones: Chasing Butterflies, Discovering Mayan Secrets, and Looking for Hope Along the Way.”

Janice Noga and Oscar Speace, the creative team behind the one-woman show “Janka,” talk about the new movie version of the material. It premieres April 1 and 2 at the Fresno Art Museum.

Jonathan Padilla and Cady Mejias almost made it to the stage in Selma Arts Center’s “The SpongeBob Musical” in January, but Omicron had other plans. The good news: The production has moved to summer. They talk about what it’s like to come so close to opening a show but having to postpone at the last minute.

    This is such a wonderful show on CMAC! Thoroughly enjoyed hearing Diana talk about her life and adventures. Loved her first book and am just starting The Fallen Stones, which I know I will love, too! And your stellar interview with Janice and Oscar. The play is amazing and I cannot wait for the movie premier at the Fresno Art Museum! And the Sponge Bob interview is just charming. That will be a definite must see! Really wonderful, informative, entertaining show, Donald. Thank you!!!
