Award winning comedic storytellers Sue Schmidt, Kevin Gallagher and Bobby Stoddard know how to spin a yarn or three. You can expect an evening of memorable tales when the seasoned performers join forces onstage in “How Much Longer?” This sequel show to the first “Are We There Yet” interweaves individual recollections into a hilarious and poignant whole. Narratives from different periods of their lives reveal moments of triumph and heartbreak. Add to this equation a live soundtrack by The Brevity Thing and we are remindedthat laughter is often the best medicine.
This performance will benefit the Community Restorative Justice Center in St. Johnsbury.
Location: Alexander Twilight Theater, Lyndon State College, 1001 College Rd, Lyndonville, VT
