Mark your calendars! March 13, 7pm, at the Princeton Public Library:

It's time to forge comedy out of angst, to take carbon and make carbonation, to have some serious fun with a subject that people feel so strongly about yet talk about so little. Attend the premier of the 

*** Climate Change Cabaret ***

to gain fresh perspectives on Carbon (a seductive renaissance atom, but beware--not all carbons are the same!). Meet the new, improved, and highly lovable Mr. SustainableWitness a man's tragicomic breakup with his car. Take an Ironic Ride to the Dinky, and explore Earth Logic in Space. These theatrical sketches were born and raised in Princeton by writer/director Steve Hiltner, better known as me.

The music portion of the evening will be provided by members of the Sustainable Jazz Ensemble, with a special appearance by Princeton High School's fabulous a cappella group Around 8. There may even be a Special Delivery at the end--a surprise solution to all our earthly problems--followed by light refreshments. The event is free! (We're all working on the carbon-free part.)

This trail-blazing, consciousness-raising event is being hosted by the 2015 Princeton Environmental Film Festival, Friday, March 13, 7-9pm, in the Princeton Public Library Community Room.

Photos From Malawi Benefit

The GAIA-Trinity Reception to benefit AIDS victims in Malawi proved to be a classy event. We played our originals, along with filling a request for "something by Stan Getz".

Along with delicious food and a screening of “The Far End Of The Road”, there were a lot of heroes on hand:
Todd Schafer, President and CEO of GAIA, described GAIA's singular focus on eventually eliminating AIDS in a small country in Africa.
Attendees came through with over $5,000 in support for specific on-the-ground needs, including a motorcycle used to get health care to remote villages.

With the greatest heroism being shown by those whose presence was felt through photographs, nurses recruited and trained by GAIA to provide the care.
