eager to present it in beautiful and historic Fourth Church.
What Else is Going On?
The full version of A Moveable Feast, starring myself, Paul Hamilton, and cabaret singer Justin Hayford, will be presented on:
January 22nd at 3pm at Valparaiso University. I will soon have repeats

Sunday, April 29th at 3:00, at Delaware County Community College outside Philadelphia.
I am giving a noontime recital at the Chicago Cultural Center on July
