City Lights with Lois Reitzes

Weekdays at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 7 p.m. on WABE's Live Stream

"City Lights" explores the ways in which people express themselves creatively and enhance our lives.

In addition to a wide range of music, "City Lights" covers theater, dance, pop culture, visual arts and more. WABE has long been a partner with many organizations in Atlanta and through "City Lights" we're deepening those relationships to serve our community with even greater arts and cultural content.

Or, you might see a film with a much more modest budget, made with a crew of less than 50 and one camera. These are just some of differences between an independent film and one made with a major film studio like Columbia Pictures and 20th Century Fox.

The book came out in 1952, and since then has been adapted into films, a musical, a video game and, also, a puppet show.

The Center for Puppetry Arts opens “Charlotte’s Web” next week. "City Lights" host Lois Reitzes spoke with puppeteers Amy Sweeney and Nikolas Carleo about the production and White’s enduring story.
