Russell Goldman ’17 writes:
“KGB Presents: The 24-Hour ‘Let’s Beak Canary Cancer!’ Benefit Concert & Variety Show Telethon: Hour 24” is a new theatrical project written and directed by the dream-cream of Solomon Billinkoff ’14 and Russell Goldman, and sponsored by Second Stage.
It centers around the final hour of a 24-hour public-access telethon to benefit canary cancer.
What is canary cancer, you ask? Just shut up for a second.
Canary cancer is a terrible disease that has wreaked havoc on 127 different species of birds. The symptoms include vomit.
This is not a ticketed event, so show up early (20-30 minutes before showtime) to get a seat!
The show contains material that is shocking and offensive and is not recommended for canaries under 18 or for humans under 18.
DATE?: Thursday, February 20th – Saturday, February 22nd
TIME?: 8pm (arrive 20-30 mins early for seats)
PLACE?: Westco Café

1991. USA. Dir: John Singleton. With Cuba Gooding Jr., Ice Cube. 112 min.
Coming of age is no easy task, especially in South Central L.A. This tale of boyz and men trying to do the right thing remains as wrenching and relevant as it was 20 years ago, thanks to the effortless camaraderie among its cast and the vitality imbued by Singleton – the first Black director nominated for an Oscar (and still the youngest nominee overall).
Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
