You are cordially invited. I wanted to give you all, the million-plus of you being my closest and dearest friends, an invitation to the first official one-man live show I have ever done. I am performing under my stage name so that the entire title of the piece is John A. Robinson: An Evening of Morbid Whimsy, Live.
Granted, I must tell you that the show is set for Saturday, June 4th at 7pm Central Time. It is taking place not in Atlanta but my hometown of Huntsville, Alabama–the place that spawned many of the stories I will be reading for you that night. If it makes you feel any better, it will be at Amendment XXI: a bar. Granted, a bar with a posh upstairs that has a stage…but a bar all the same. The kind that serves alcohol. Yes, I know, even in Alabama.
Even if it weren’t in a bar, I would be compelled to tell you: this show is for mature audiences only. This due to language and subject matter.
For those of you who can make it, the evening’s fare will be some poetry, some spoken word and some prose, fixed together with odd and somewhat amusing bridging stories. All are welcome.
For those of you who are reading this on some other continent or even some other end of this continent, or simply cannot make it: just know you were thought of.
If the show is a success, this may be repeated and in other venues. We shall see.
Thought you’d like to know. Thanks for your indulgence.
