Brush Up Your Shakespeare for November

Posted by ChrisArnott on October 6, 2015 in Uncategorized |

It has been decreed that the next edition of Get to the Point! (exact date to be determined) shall have an Elizabethan vibe. For many that will mean Shakespeare. For some it will be a chance to share fave lines from Will’s pals Ben Jonson and Christopher Marlowe. From those hoping to address the gender imbalance […]

The October 5 Get to the Point!: Don’t That Beat All?

Posted by ChrisArnott on October 6, 2015 in Uncategorized |

We’ve had two colossal Get to the Point!s in a row now, with stand-alone main events following impressive line-ups of stories, readings, songs and such. September was the full-album concert version of The Point, commandeered by Dean Falcone. That needs its own essay, which will have to run here out of order. For I have […]

What Transpired at the June 1 Edition of Get to the Point

Posted by ChrisArnott on June 3, 2015 in Uncategorized |

Haven’t done a GttP summary in many moons—not because I don’t care to, but because the shows are so in-the-moment that when I wait to collect my thoughts about them, I realize I’ve forgotten half the details. Definitely a live experience. I could print out every word that was said last night, and it would […]

Get to the Point! line-up for Oct. 13 at Cafe Nine

Posted by ChrisArnott on October 3, 2014 in Uncategorized |

The grand return of Get to the Point! (after a summer hiatus) is chock full of stories, music and humor.   The line-up (almost certainly NOT in this order):   Elizabeth Walker, telling (for the first time in public) her adventures as a child actress, making The World of Henry Orient with Peter Sellers and […]

Yes, Get to the Point! is back—and on different Mondays

Posted by ChrisArnott on October 3, 2014 in Uncategorized |

The last Get to the Point! was back in June. A break was required while host Christopher Arnott moved from New Haven to Bethany. He is learning to drive and was unable to easily get back and forth from country to city without either perspiring a great deal or begging. Cafe Nine, in its infinite […]

For Monday, June 2, the mix is just what Get to the Point! does best: representatives of the local music scene trying new things; theater types (including a special guest from Chicago and a sweet Connecticut playwright); writers of all stripes; cherished regulars who really get what Get to the Point! is all about; and […]

What Happened on the 7th

Posted by ChrisArnott on April 9, 2014 in Uncategorized |

A personal recap of the April 7 Get to the Point!: A musical voice expected for the show was unable to materialize due to a crisis. A call was put out Monday morning. FOUR musicians arrived, throwing off the balance of music to words. But that’s OK. These singer/songwriters had answered a call of distress, […]

What Happened at the 16th

Posted by ChrisArnott on March 4, 2014 in Uncategorized |

It was below freezing. A few hardy folks braved the chill for the March 3 Get to the Point! Due to a number of late postponements and cancellations, this was that rare underbooked Get to the Point! where presenters got a chance to do encores.   Steve Bellwood monologued whilst David Pilot keyboarded. Highlights were […]

The latest for March 3

Posted by ChrisArnott on March 3, 2014 in Uncategorized |

OK, some of the outliers and suburbanites pulled out when it looked like heavy snow. The snow has not happened, but it’s still crazy cold. And we’ve lost at three folks who were due to be on the bill tonight to illness. Here’s who I’m expecting tonight: • Music and words from Steve Bellwood and […]
