Many important news items about me

So if you've got no plans for Monday night and $17.50 burning a hole in your pocket, you might be interested in going to the Manhattan Theatre Club for "Satire Me Out!" (scroll down to second item). Swoosie Kurtz, Richard Thomas, and others will be reading a selection of short humor pieces, including excerpts from the Holy Tango of Poetry.

Speaking of the Holy Tango of Poetry, today I finally signed the contract for the...wait for it...Holy Tango book (due out this fall, barring deadline-related disasters)! It'll collect previously written and all-new material (poetry and plays), and may include songs. Sweet.

And speaking of songs, I'll be playing a short set at Barbes on May 6, opening for the fab Life in a Blender; I'll be starting promptly at 7:00 and playing for about 30 minutes (which is, like, 14 songs, given my average song length). A couple Holy Tango songs will surely be included among my set list.

I gotta know, is there a Holy Tango play by Wendy Wasserstein? Or can you not discuss such things? I mean, I tried like hell to find a decent anagram myself and was only able to extract "Rent 'Newsies'".
