I was asked to put together a list of the various theater and spoken-word things I have going on this summer. It’s a pretty busy schedule for me, and I am pretty pleased.

I will be on stage for 15 minutes, telling either an excerpt from my upcoming MNFringe show, or possibly a condensed version of the show, or maybe something else entirely.
