Looks like a good lineup this year. Meet me downtown!
I am not a fan of musical theater. The only time I want someone singing dialog at me is in an opera being sung in a language I don’t understand. That way the human voice becomes another musical instrument, and I don’t have to try to process the cringe-worthy lyrics. However, I saw the very smart and funny The Story Of A Story last night. You want to go to there!
Local authors Tim Chapman, Libby Fischer Hellmann, Diane Piron-Gelman, and J. Michael Major will read and discuss the short story form. They will also be available to sign their latest books.
