Copy of Mary and Max Invitation-Only Concert

Bullied 13-year old Lily has locked herself in her room. Her newly single father doesn't know what to do. Always a storyteller, he chooses to finally tell Lily the story of Mary and Max, a tale set in the 1970s about the seemingly random friendship between Mary Daisy Dinkle, a chubby and lonely eight-year-old with a birthmark on her forehead the color of poo who lives in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia and Max Jerry Horowitz, a 44-year-old obese New Yorker who is soon diagnosed with a newly named disorder, Asperger’s Syndrome. As penpals, they go through their highest and lowest times together, spanning twenty-plus years.

Poetry/Cabaret: CHILLY at The Green Room 42

Poetry/Cabaret: CHILLY at The Green Room 42

The coffeehouse meets the cabaret in “Poetry/Cabaret: CHILLY” at The Green Room 42. Come in from the cold, but prepare to be chilled by poems, songs, and stories about frosty receptions, tingles along the spine, and cool, smooth characters. Curated and hosted by Thomas March, author of the newly-released collection Aftermath, Poetry/Cabaret brings together poets and performers in an evening of wild variations on a theme. Sometimes the poems and performances amplify each other—and sometimes they go in completely different directions. Join us for a hilarious, heartening, and heart-breaking evening of emotional whiplash!
