Improv Troupe for People with Down Syndrome; Statehouse Update; Rust Belt Burlesque

Featured Audio

A troupe just debuted a show this past weekend, and it's a show unlike any you've ever seen. The Improvaneers is an improv group made up entirely of actors with Down Syndrome.
The group's founder and a principal performer talk about the program and what it provides for cast members and the audience.

And then we get an update from Statehouse reporter Andy Chow in Columbus. Nuclear bailouts - coal subsidies - green energy's been a week to talk energy and power plays. Now a group has filed its first round of signatures with the Ohio Attorney General's Office, looking to hold a referendum on the law that bails out nuclear plants.

And we look forward to Thursday's 9th annual International Ohio Burlesque Festival - with the pied-piper of Cleveland's resurgent Burlesque scene.
