Perhaps you have fond childhood memories of reading Shel Silverstein's poignant 1964 kids' classic The Giving Tree, or you've giggled over hilarious poems from Where the Sidewalk Ends and A Light in the Attic with your own kids. Well, stick a bookmark in all those warm-and-fuzzy feelings. An Adult Evening of Shel Silverstein shines a light on the beloved scribe's more risqué side. Silverstein's R-rated literary alter ego "Uncle Shelby" contributed cartoons and stories to Playboy, dabbled in theater for grown-ups and had a knack for comedy that was both dark and sexual. Get an earful of stories that are less "bedtime" and more "after-hours" when An Adult Evening's 10 short plays comes to The Vanguard in Ft. Lauderdale.
This production contains mature subject matter and is recommended for audience members ages 18 and older.
