  1. I’m soo glad to see this event listed on Middblog!!! Everyone, please com out and see this amazing event!!! We’ve been working on putting it together fro so long and it has finally happened and we would love o see you all there. tickets are $3

  2. Fantastic show!! I just got back. Exceptional in every way: really varied performances with tons of talent, didn’t know what was going to happen next, some real insight inside all the crazyness, lots of humor… And the audience was so pumped. Almost three hours of performance and hardly anyone left.

    And I got to read a poem and it was so fun!!

    Congrats, Barbara, and everyone else who organized it!
