reminder: wisteriax upcoming shows
Hi all,
Just wanted to remind you that I'll be opening a fantastic show this Thursday at the Arlington Regional Theatre. Black Tape for a Blue Girl, Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys, and the venerable Dreamchild are all on this amazing bill. Not to mention door prizes and other fun stuff. I still have some advance tickets available for just $12. (or you could pay $15 at the door if you prefer) Contact me for delicious details!

And...
I also still have a few tickets left for the Edgar Allen Poe show on Oct. 18th at the Athenian Corner in Lowell. These tickets are only available in advance, so speak now or hold your peace forevermore!

Hope to see you soon...
~Karen
