Summer is the best time to fall in love. So. I'm overjoyed that three of my favorite people, and four more I'm yet to meet, are telling unrehearsed, true, six-minute long stories tonight on the theme of summer love. Also, for those of you cynical and jaded enough about love to need extra motivation to attend, there'll be swimsuit models on intermission!
Mercury arts editor Alison Hallett, Mercury film writer and local blogger Kiala Kazebee, and novelist Melissa Lion (who is co-hosting the event with Frayn Masters) are the three I know. There's also Becky Poole, of New York Sketch Comedy Group, Meat, Cathleen Mullins, a photographer and former scientologist (I think her story might be on the theme of breaking up with scientology...but who knows), Eric Reid, who describes himself as an actor and recent homeowner (it must be family money), and Brian Belefant, a film maker and writer.
