Dorothy Velasco reviews the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's production of Off the Rails, the first play by a Native American to be performed at OSF.

This is KLCC. I’m Dorothy Velasco with the Ashland Theater Review.

“Off the Rails,” the first play by a Native American to be performed at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, is a mishmash — part comedy, part musical, part history lesson, and part morality tale loosely based on Shakespeare’s “Measure for Measure.”

Summer means camping, which can bring up images of drooping tents, wet sleeping bags, and swarms of mosquitos. But many campsite owners are offering amenities to make the experience more comfy, even luxurious.  And while critics say “glamping” defeats the purpose of getting away from it all, others say the trend has always been around.  KLCC’s Brian Bull visits some glamp sites in Oregon.  

For only the third time in the past century, a total solar eclipse will shadow Oregon, beginning in Lincoln City on Monday, August 21st at 10:15 a.m. KLCC's Eric Alan speaks with particle physicist and astronomer Dr. Jim Brau, former director of the UO Center for High Energy Physics, and the Philip H. Knight Professor of Natural Science.

This is KLCC.  I’m Connie Bennett, Director of Eugene Public Library, with a book review of “Wildman” by J.C. Geiger.

I’ve never been a teenaged boy.  Never been in a ’93 Buick.  So, it was with a little trepidation that I picked up “Wildman,” Eugene author J.C. Geiger’s debut novel.  Though the book has received quite a bit of buzz in the teen market since its colorful “road-trip” launch last spring, I wasn’t sure how accessible – or interesting – it might be to older readers.

Earlier this year, the Oregon Country Fair axed plans to display the Story Pole…a 36-foot tall wooden carving done in a distinctive, Native American style.  As KLCC’s Brian Bull reports, its fate is still being decided.
