Sunday, November 1st was the first day of the fall open enrollment period for the Maryland Health Benefits Exchange. The state agency runs the Web portal that Marylanders use to sign up for Obamacare coverage plans.  A recent state audit revealed significant management and security problems at the exchange -- problems the agency says it's fixing.  We’ll start with an update on the health benefit exchange, and we’ll look at how a non-profit called Health Care for the Homeless is helping the indigent find quality medical services. 

Then, a look at the changing theater scene in Baltimore.  Kwame Kwei Armah talks about his big plans for Center Stage.

Theater critic J Wynn Rousuck reviews the August Wilson play, Fences, at the Everyman Theater.

And for drama that’s a bit off the beaten path, a preview of the Charm City Fringe Festival, which launches this week.
