David Fuller and Judith Jarosz, Montague Street residents and Executive Director and Producing Artistic Director, respectively, of Theater Ten Ten, are
curating hosting The Walt Whitman Project, their seventh annual celebration of the anniversary of the publication of the third edition of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, this Wednesday evening at 7:00 (doors open at 6:30), at the Theater’s space in the undercroft of the First Christian Church, entrance at 1010 Park Avenue, between 84th and 85th Streets (yes, to celebrate this great Brooklyn poet, you must schlep to the Upper East Side). According to Fuller and Jarosz, “It will be a joyous evening of poetry, prose, and music. Birthday cake and refreshments return to this year’s event.” Participants include actors, musicians, poets, a Whitman historian, Greg Trupiano and Lon Black of The Whitman Project, and film producer and BHB contributor Heather Quinlan.
