My latest Get to the Point! storytelling/reading/playing show is tonight (Monday, Oct. 13) at Cafe Nine.
It’s actually a comeback edition, since my family’s recent move to Bethany impeded my mobility, so I took a few months off while I learned to drive.
The time away has stirred my resolve to add more theater elements and other quirky personal tastes to this endeavor. To that end, next month (Nov. 10) Get tot the Point! will be staging the East Coast premiere of the Indiana improv sensation Going… Going… Gone, with its creator Lou Harry in attendance.
Here’s tonight’s line-up (subject to last-minute change:
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 of 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.
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, grabbing the mic.
Elizabeth Appel with some story-poems.
… and me, holding a ukulele.
It all starts around 8 p.m. at 250 State St., New Haven.
