ADMISSION: FREE (w/ purchase of 1 item)
If you scratch the surface of any writer/performer, you'll find they secretly long to be a musician. Next Wednesday, we'll be scratching that itch when we bring three of my favorite writer/performers together with one of the best little jazz trios in NYC. Each performer will read a piece, as a live jazz band improvises behind them.
