Liz Ryder ia an accomplished instrumentalist with a remarkable voice; and Gabriel Grilli is a bold and daring dramatic reader/interpreter - 'tis not easy to put epic poem out there for an hour and hold us all enraptured - which he did.

Please join The Custom Made Theatre Company for a special benefit night. Your ticket includes a reception with wine and baked goods, mingling, musical entertainment, and the highlight of the night, Shel Silverstein’s epic, adult poem The Devil and Billy Markham (first published in Playboy in 1979) and performed by Custom Made favorite, Gabriel Grilli (Mr. Marmalade, The Old Neighborhood).
Shel didn’t just write children’s books, he also had a very dirty mind and from it sprawled this epic tale of a pair of weighted dice, a man with nothing to lose, and a devil’s obsession with being as devilish as possible.
Custom Made is also excited to bring back Liz Ryder, who penned the song in last season’s Red Light Winter and is very successful folk singer/songwriter who just completed her Pacific Coast tour in celebration of her second CD, Ghost Letters from the Sea.
Proceeds support Custom Made’s annual fund.
