Want a chance to see Neil Gaiman in person? He is an author of various forms of media, including screenwriting, novels, comic books, etc. His memorable works include “Coraline,” episodes of “Doctor Who” and “Babylon 5,” “The Sandman,” “Stardust,” “American Gods” and “The Graveyard Book.” This famous writer will be at the Somerville Theatre for a special show on Oct. 7, 2013 at 7:00 PM. Neil Gaiman will be joined by his wife Amanda Palmer, as well as Brian Viglione and other performers for this one night only show.
Art lovers will also enjoy meeting Amanda Palmer. She wears many hats including pianist, singer-songwriter, blogger, playwright, etc. If you are a fan of The Dresden Dolls, Brian Viglione's name should ring a bell. He is the drummer. There are several other local acts and more to be announced as that night gets closer.
Tickets are available for reserved seats at $25 a pop or $100 for Gold Circle seats for the VIP experience which includes schmoozing with the honored guests and an autographed art poster from those involved in the show. Both types of tickets have an additional $1.00 facility fee. This show, appropriately named “A Tribute to Rebecca Rosenthal: A Night of Music, Art & Remembering” is a benefit that goes towards the Rebecca Samay Rosenthal ’07 Memorial Special Collections Fund at Smith College.
You can pick up a ticket here. You can also get your reservations on location at the Somerville Theatre box office, which is located at 55 Davis Square between 4:00 PM and 8:00 PM daily. Need special accommodations? Call the Somerville Theatre at 617-625-4088 during those same office hours.
This event will be fun to attend and help a good cause. Rebecca Samay Rosenthal was from Newton, Mass and a local student at Smith College. She passed away before her time on Oct. 23, 2012. At 27, she was already a prominent writer and read vigorously. She was often found at the Mortimer Rare Book Room along with the Archives. One of the organizers for the show sent us this info about Rebecca:
“To honor Becca’s memory, and to redirect extreme grief into something positive and productive, Amanda, Neil and other friends of Becca’s are spearheading this benefit for this fund in Becca’s name. It is for the benefit of students working in the Archives or the Rare Book Room, where Becca spent so much of her time being the hipster librarian they all knew she would one day actually become (and get paid to do).”
