Executive Director, Anne Biberman discussed what's in store for the 70th birthday celebration.

"Postmodern Jukebox, one of our most successful shows ever, that will actually be our 70th anniversary birthday bash," said Biberman. "We'll be jazzing it up with a little added value and some fun things going on that night, then we have a very special program coming up on November 3. That is Storm Large. It's limited to 100 people, it'll be a fundraiser for us, and it will also be an extension of that birthday celebration with lots of fun things going on."
