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 director George Roy Hill.
Brian Wolfe (aka Ebin Parker) using words and music to describe his admiration for the late British singer-songwriter Nick Drake.
Brian Robinson, managing director of the Yale Symphony Orchestra and classical-grunge leader of the band Tet Offensive.
Sunnie Lovelace, librarian and rock climber.
Derek Holcomb of legendary local band The Furors.
Ina Chadwick & Duncan Christy, with stories and songs and parodies.
Phil Rosenthal, photographer/philosopher.
Michael Cooper, experiencing the best night of his life.
Sara Russell, long cool poet.
Craig Gilbert, dropping anvils on little cartoon girls.
Saul Fussiner, turning his life literary.
Ken Carlson, writer/humorist, grabbing the mic.
… and your humble host Christopher Arnott.
We start around 8 p.m. and go until everyone’s done talking. No cover! The wondrous Margaret as your bartender! And assuming they arrive in time, a FREE GIFT to the first 35 people to arrive.
