The first in a reading series to benefit the Point Foundation, this event will highlight the work of McSweeney’s columnist and Broadway dancer, Brian Spitulnik. Housed in RAC’s intimate art gallery space, the evening will be a mélange of cabaret songs, boozy beverages, and salacious backstage tales. The talents of Broadway actors Nick Blaemire (GODSPELL), Santino Fontana (SONS OF THE PROPHET), Celia Keenan-Bolger (MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG), and Tony Sheldon (PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT) will be on hand to sing a few standards and read selections from Spitulnik’s column, “The Chorus Boy Chronicles.” Click here to RSVP on Facebook.
About Brian Spitulnik:
Brian Spitulnik spent nearly everyday of his young life on a stage or in a dance studio in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. Now, he has two useless degrees (a B.F.A. in Musical Theater from the University of Michigan and an M.F.A. in Nonfiction Writing from Columbia University), and is putting them both to use in New York City (by performing for the past four and a half years in the Broadway revival of Chicago and by writing his bi-monthly column for McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, “The Chorus Boy Chronicles,” as well as a book about tap dancing and other less-jaunty topics, such as an inheritance of mental instability and the multi-generational effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). Brian is a winner of the Avery Hopwood Award for Nonfiction, and is the author of two plays, A Good Boy, and Angels, Twice Descending. Upcoming projects include a stage adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, and penning episodes of Hollywood and Vine, a new television drama.
