A record-breaking crowd was in attendance on Sunday, Sept. 30, at the Sierra Club’s presentation of Dr. Keeling’s Curve, a one-man show performed by Mike Farrell, best know for his role as BJ Hunnicutt in the hit series M*A*S*H. The play was written by George Shea and directed by Kirsten Sanderson. Read more about each artist in performance program.


The crowd jumped to their feet for a standing ovation after the 90 minute show which demonstrated, step by step, the rise of CO2 and the devastating effects it is having on the globe - a future which is unsustainable and at our heels if we don’t take drastic steps to make changes in our daily lives.


The evening concluded with a panel of experts who discussed their takes on how to mobilize to tackle this global phenomena and make changes for the future.
