The topic of this ball is "The Curious Sofa" which was written by Ogdred Weary, an anagram for Edward Gorey. Although labeled a "pornographic illustrated story about furniture" the illustrations are by even the standards of the 1960s tame. The innuendos might have made a historical Edwardian or Victorian faint (at least in polite public) but Gorey Edwardians will likely embrace the naughtiness.

The Fonda Theatre is a historic 1920's venue originally built as Carter De Haven's Music Box and is formerly known as The Henry Fonda Theatre and The Music Box. One of Hollywood's first legitimate theatres, the Henry Fonda Music Box Theatre experienced a variety of incarnations during the 1920's, 1930's and 1940's as part of an entertainment district of exceptional quality and diversity. The Fonda Theatre is an all ages venue.
