Rawlins Gilliland

Think about this night at the theater like you would any other one night stand. Except perhaps this time you'll have wiled away the hours with a lively, charming man you won't regret in the morning. For years, Rawlins Gilliland was a welcome voice on public radio, telling stories with poetic insight. He earned listener's affection with tales of a life well-lived and now this bon vivant has written one of the year's most popular one-man shows. After a sold-out evening at Sons of Hermann Hall in May, Gilliland returns to the microphone for One-Man Show: Rated (R)awlins at the Kessler Theater at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. This magical evening of storytelling is already sold-out, although there are standing room tickets still available for $40.
