Saturday, July 9: OVER HER DEAD BODY Premieres

Come out to the Trinidad Theater at the Logan Fringe Arts Space *this Saturday* to see OVER HER DEAD BODY, the brand-new, harmony-heavy, darkly poignant play from Pinky Swear Productions. Dead Men’s Hollow – minus Amy, who is on vacation – is the pit band for the show. Tickets available now and here until two hours before showtime; note you must have a Capital Fringe Festival Button to gain admission. Some tickets may be available at the door, but it’s best to buy now to avoid disappointment.

Marcy moonlights at Jammin Java next week…

Hey gang: Our friend Steve Coffee (isn’t that the coolest name?) has developed a wonderful show with music and themes inspired by the Dust Bowl. RAIN FOLLOWS THE PLOW is coming to Jammin Java on June 2: check out the invitation link to get more details. Marcy will be sitting in with Steve on fiddle, and many other fine musicians will also take part.
