    WE THE PEOPLE…ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE FAITH

    The night after their grandfather’s funeral, three cousins engage in a verbal (and sometimes physical) battle. In one corner is Daphna Feygenbam, a “Real Jew” who is volatile, self-assured and unbending. In the other is her equally stubborn cousin Liam, a secular and entitled young man, who has his shiksa girlfriend, Melody, in tow. Stuck in the middle is Liam’s brother, Jonah, who tries to stay out of the fray. When Liam stakes claim to their grandfather’s Chai necklace, a vicious and hilarious brawl over family, faith, and legacy ensues.

    Paula Broadwater
    YOU ARE WHAT YOU THINK

    Listen Y’all. You are what you think.
    Now that can be pretty or it can down right stink.
    This Georgia peach by way of Mobile, AL will share her thoughts on the matter and sing straight into your soul with music of Cole Porter, Sondheim, and maybe a little Patsy Cline before the evening is through.
    Paula, accompanied by the fabulous Justin Havard,
    is the 2017 winner of the Julie Wilson award
    for her cabaret performance in the Sarasolo Festival
    that wowed the sell out crowd in the Starlite Room.
    Lots of layers to this Vidalia onion.
