Last night! What a super time was had with Jeremy Radin in the house, consummate actor and teacher, who started the evening by leading an early-bird performance workshop for an enthusiastic crew. Jeremy went on to put together a glorious feature, leading us from birdsong through sweet personal patter and ending with a series of poemologues (yes, we made that word up, what about it) to tug the heartstrings and maybe just a very few stars free from the sky. Jeremy’s book, Dear Sal, is still available from Not a Cult publishing house, but you can also see more of Jeremy’s work live in the NorthBEAST this week if you check your other local slams’ listings (hint: he’ll be at Slam Free or Die this very evening).
Next week: oh, boy, these Wednesdays are full of glory. We are so pleased to welcome Jeanann Verlee back to the stage, touring in support of her new book, prey. Doors open at 7:15 for you to get a seat, our open mic starts promptly at 8:00, and Jeanann will take the stage sometime after a 9:45ish break. See you there!
