“ AIN'T YOUR MAMA'S HEAT WAVE ! ” is a variety comedy show that is part of a movie production being filmed in the Hampton Roads region, specifically in the City of Norfolk. Faced with flooding and rising sea-levels, the region is at the front lines of the climate crisis and focused on solutions to become more resilient to increasing climate impacts. This first of its kind commentary on the climate crisis, the 2020 elections, intersectionality, and power building, is young, funny, and entertaining. Performers and comics are coming from across the country -- including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta, and right here in the 757 -- for this special night at the historic Attucks Theater, which turned 100 years old this year.
