Actor and director Peter Riegert appeared in the off-Broadway debut of the play of “Sexual Perversity in Chicago” 30 years ago; now catch up with him as he directs the 2006 A.C.T production. Meet artists displaced by Hurricane Katrina who find shelter at the Djerassi Resident Artist Program. And take a brief look inside the Dance Improv, a regular event hosted by Kara Davis.
