Or See Ted Nugent
By Staff Report
Modern Times Magazine
June 7, 2017 — It is not often that a piece of legislation reaches the level of controversy of Arizona Senate Bill 1070. From its introduction and 2010 through to the end of the legal challenges just a few years ago, the bill was lauded as an answer to immigration issues while also lambasted for its negative impact on people and political discourse.
Now, it's a play.
From June 23 to July 9, the Herberger Theater Center, 222 E. Monroe in Phoenix, will present 1070, a play based on Arizona’s highly controversial 2010 law and its impact on one immigrant family.
Tickets range from $15 to $25.
