On The Wednesday, March 6, 2019 Edition Of Idaho Matters

  • Alley Repertory Theater tackles controversial Paula Vogel play.
  • Youth sports organizers warn parent behavior is compromising activities.
  • Cheeky Boutique founder writes a book.

- Paula Vogel's Indecent examines the controversy surrounding a 1923 Broadway play that scandalized New York with a tale of a Jewish brothel owner. Idaho Matters speaks with Buffie Main of Alley Repertory Theater about censorship, sex and religion.

- Everybody has seen them at little league or youth soccer games - the parents that scream, yell and curse at the refs, the coaches, the other parents - and sometimes the kids. They ruin something that should be fun and enriching for kids and they're making it hard to hire refs and umps to officiate these games. We'll look at ways youth sports organizers are trying to bring some harmony back to the playing field with Ty Jones of the Idaho High School Activities Association and Tim Brady of the Idaho Youth Sports Commission.

- Cheeky Boutique founder Jessi Roberts joins Idaho Matters to talk about her book, Backroads Boss Lady.
