This week on Inside the Arts, big laughs as we tickle your funny bone.

Summer Lyric Theater continues its season with the Tony Award nominated musical Once Upon a Mattress.  We catch up with director Ricky Graham and actress Leslie Clavarie.

Then, a riddle... What happens when you put an artist and a scientist in the same boat? The answer may surprise you.

And, we round out with more humor, this time poking fun at societal issues as The New Orleans Shakespeare Festival at Tulane presents Oscar Wilde's most popular work, The Importance of Being Earnest.

Airs Tuesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Thursdays at 8:45 a.m.

"This is NPR's Morning Edition, at 89.9 WWNO. Good Morning, I'm Diane Mack."
