I've received a couple of messages in the past week regarding an upcoming song-poem event in Chicago. I'll actually be out of town that weekend, but it seems like something those who read my posts might be interested in.
Specifically, this is a new musical called "Song-Poems Wanted!", to be presented August 22 & 23 at Theatre Building Chicago. It's the brainchild of (among others) Larry Carpenter and Arthur Kaufmann (of Magic Key Records), who was featured in the Song-Poem documentary "Off the Charts". It features a number of song-poems as well as original material.
