Opening tonight at Torn Page: Paul Swan is Dead and Gone, a new play by the Civilians, starring Tony Torn and written by Claire Kiechel, the great-great grandniece of the eponymous Paul Swan, one of the most eccentric yet nearly superhuman performers to come out of vaudeville. I’m thrilled to report I’ll be leading a post-show discussion about this amazing artist following the May 14 performance. Buy your tickets now! Torn Page shows sell out fast. Tix and info here.
