Christmas comes early this year!

Ecstatic. Thrilled. Psyched. Ontheedgeofmyseat. I await the First Person Arts Festival more than Christmas these days. Each performance is like unwrapping a different present, and I got just what I wanted. A Speakeasy? Check. Concert? Check. The Yes Men? Check check. Even a chance to meet A. J. Jacobs in person? That too. Apparently I was good this year. And the biggest present tucked behind the Christmas tree? That’d have to be the Grand Slam.  Needless to say I’ve been looking forward to this all year.

I’m not the only one eagerly anticipating the Annual Festival. Philebrity is talking about it, and so is the Philadelphia Daily News. They’ve published articles about the events they are craving, including the Karaoke Obsessed event, Still Bill, and tonight’s hit America Eats.

So meet me at the next event! I will probably be sitting in the front row, bright-eyed and overeager… but who can blame me? As they say, the First Person Arts Festival, comes but once a year.
