The virtual lobby will open at 6:50p with some music. The show will start promptly at 7p. We will stop “late seating” folks at 7:10p. The runtime of this show is approximately 60 minutes and will be followed by a little unwind chat and word games if you just feel like hanging out!
Because of the participatory nature of the event you might be on camera, so wear whatever you’re most comfortable in or feel great in! You want to dress up for a night with some beatniks – go for it! Settle in, bring cocktail or a cocoa, and get ready to settle in for a night of poetry, expression, and word play!
