    Interesting concept of bantering between God and the Devil (played by the show's creator and his wife) interspersed with readings from world religions set to music.

    Hello Anti-War Opera Meetup! I'll get to the venue by 12:20/12:45 and be wearing a meetup name tag. I'll get a seat in the back of the hall and hope we can all sit together. Afterward there may be a reception where we can socialize, or we can go to Burdick's Cafe which is a short walk away. Burdick's serves great coffes, teas, and pastries. See you tomorrow, Linda

    Hi Theresa,
    Yes, we try to get together at the entrance around 12:45 pm (there will be a meetup sign) and sit together. And maybe cafe afterward (TBA)
