|Rumpelstiltskin - NYC - 3/31|
I want everyone to know of a presentation, which includes discussion of Rumpelstiltskin, the deep and delightful fairy tale, to take place on Saturday, March 31 at 8 pm in New York City, at the Aesthetic Realism Foundation. As part of the Aesthetic Realism Dramatic Presentations there will be a wonderful, funny, hilarious presentation of a lecture Eli Siegel gave, “Humor and Strangeness,” in which he discussed "Rumpelstiltskin," Don Marquis’ archy and mehitabel, and Milt Gross’s Nize Baby. I loved “Rumpelstiltskin” as a child, and I don’t know of a person who doesn’t! In the lecture, Eli Siegel says: "Humor does something to reality—it’s a mingling of the world gone crazy and the world gone ever so correct." If you or any one you know will be in New York then, tell them!
