So, yes, many thanks to the folks at Spune Productions for putting together such a fine bill--and, also, for offering one lucky DC9 reader the chance to win two free tickets to tonight's show. That could be you, by the way, if you're the first person to email me right now with the names "Diane, Nadler, and Miller" in the subject line. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
