"Novel Destinations: There's the Door?"
In the style of their earlier Kumu Kahua shows "Growing Up Hyphened in America," and "Life Staged," Storytellers Neal Milner, Dann Seki, and Nyla Fujii-Babb continue a humorous and poignant examination of the struggle to answer life's BIG questions in original stories. "Who am I?" "Why am I?" "Where am I?" "How did I get here?" "What's next?" "Why do I feel so alone?" "Why don't people leave me alone?" And as Peggy Lee sang, "Is that all there is?" They will be joined by Musician "Gentleman" Jeffry Stephen Babb who will open with a sing-along of oldies but goodies!
