- FROM THE NEWSROOM: Massachusetts is one of only three states where a judge can't mandate someone receive involuntary outpatient mental health treatment — that is, treatment without hospitalization. New legislation on Beacon Hill would change that, but it's a proposal that is causing some controversy. WBUR's Deborah Becker joins us to talk about it From the Newsroom.
- EXPERIENCE AMERICA: The Experience America tour shows foreign diplomats a different U.S. city every year. This year, that city is Boston. United States Ambassador Rufus Gifford joins us ahead of the tour to talk about what to expect.
- INTO THE WOODS: Broadway's "Into the Woods" opens a two week run in Boston tonight. We talk to Katy Geraghty, a Gloucester native, about playing the part of "Little Red" in her home state - and beyond.
