Every week the Wisconsin State Journal runs “Roughneck Grace,” a weekly column written by Mike (many of the columns will be adapted from Mike’s Tent Show Radio monologues). Today’s column (about Mother Nature’s abilities as a heartless arborist) was printed on sturdy newsprint this Sunday and can now be seen online here.
I respect and admire Barry Lynn, for reasons I’ve described recently here and here and (from back when he was in his mid-90s) here, so it was good to see him onstage last weekend as he marked his 100th birthday.
The last time (or last couple of times?) Mike did a one-man show at the Oconomowoc Arts Center Little Theater it sold out and there were some disappointed folks at the door, so this year they’ve asked him to do two shows. The good news? The number of tickets pre-sold tells us we made the right move, because we’ve passed the single-night capacity. The other good news? Because they’re spread over two dates, tickets for both performances are still available, right here.
