A reclusive librarian -- the sole character -- finds a book that is 123 years overdue. When he opens it and finds a ticket for a Chinese laundry in London, his curiosity compels him to redeem the ticket leading him to another clue that sends him around the world on a global quest to track down the book's original borrower in Underneath the Lintel. Played by Paul Morella, the Librarian uncovers a mystery that seems to transcend the ages, but are the results due to investigation or madness? Underneath the Lintel is a moving journey of self-discovery where faith and facts intersect. Learn More

This one-man music and monologue show by a Jewish Scottish 50+-ish rock 'n roller is great fun. It is far from perfect; pacing and lighting/setting could have been improved and he has a serviceable singing voice. But his lyrics are poetical and his poetry is lyrical and his ability to find the funny and wise is dead on. Go!

Goodman’s songs tell a story of love and hope with wry wit and uncompromising honesty, capturing the unique sights and sounds, challenges and complexities of life as a songwriter and performer in New York City.
