The razor-sharp wit of famed stand-up Paula Poundstone will be on full display, as she slices and dices her way through an evening of keen cultural commentary. Famed for a quick mind that always manages to come up with the perfect quip, Poundstone is a master of riffing off the crowd. It's also why she's the perfect panelist for NPR's Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me!, where she's featured alongside some of the nation's leading pundits. She broke through in 1990 with her acclaimed HBO special Cats, Cops and Stuff, and was both the first woman to be invited to perform at the White House Correspondents' dinner and the first woman to win a CableACE Award for Best Stand-Up Comedy Special. Still knocking them dead as a headliner, Poundstone released her latest comedy disc, I Heart Jokes: Paula Tells Them in Boston, in April 2013, and has recently toured as part of the A Prairie Home Companion live show.

- Smuin's 2007 Fall/Winter Season was a Goldstar Roar of the Crowd winner.
Smuin Ballet's 15th anniversary season promises to be an even more exciting adventure with a year of premieres. In their upcoming fall/winter Program, Emmy Award-winning guest choreographer Robert Sund will be staging his Smuin Ballet premiere with Carmen, a sexy, jazzy interpretation of the classic story of romantic obsession, set to the music of Miles Davis.
Additionally, Smuin Ballet Choreographer in Residence Amy Seiwert will present Been Through Diamonds, her eighth world premiere for Smuin, set to the music of Mozart. Seiwert has been recognized by the dance and entertainment worlds alike, named by Dance Magazine as one of the "top 25 to watch" in 2005 and highlighted by 7x7 Magazine in their "Hot 20 Under 40" list.
Rounding off the program, audiences will enjoy Michael Smuin's Dances with Songs, the vibrant, iconic ballet that launched the Company fifteen years ago.
