This week on Open Air, KALW’s radio magazine for the performing arts in the Bay Area, host David Latulippe talks with cast member Adrianna Hicks, who plays the role of Celie in the musical The Color Purple, currently at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco, through May 27.


This music is being played by the Ives Collective. They specialize in “performances that venture beyond the familiar,” often featuring works that are rarely heard. The Ives Collective has a performance Sunday (10/23) at the Old First Church on Sacramento Street in San Francisco. Music begins at 4 p.m.
