A local production of the acclaimed musical The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown opens tonight at Roxy's Downtown. The two-person show tells the story of the rise and fall of a romantic relationship played, in this production, by a real-life husband and wife.

Plus more on these stories:

  • Despite a police raid and the death of its co-owner, the Marion County Record published yesterday, just a few hours behind schedule. Police seized computers at the Kansas newspaper last week in a move that’s been widely criticized as a potential first amendment violation.
  • Also, the Marion County Record will soon get its equipment back. The Kansas Bureau of Investigation and a county attorney said there was insufficient evidence tying the search and seizure of the Marion County Record’s equipment to an alleged crime.
  • An eight-year-old girl from the Derby school district died after being hit by a school bus in southeast Wichita Wednesday morning.
  • Transgender Kansans hope to have their interests represented in a lawsuit filed by Attorney General Kris Kobach against the Kansas Department of Revenue.
  • Two separate audits of the Kansas foster care system say the state needs to do more to help foster children.
  • Kansas farmers will get another $1 million in state money to help with conservation efforts.
