OFF CENTER STAGE The Center for the Arts’ DISCOVER SERIES presents - Words and Music
Split at birth and scattered to the far ends of the star system, Grammar/Dupra were reunited by a constellation cadillac and what can only be described as a GOD DAMNED MIRACLE. These longtime friends and collaborators return to the Off Center Stage for one night of poetry, songs, stories, humor, revelry and all things unveiled in WORDS AND MUSIC.
Long time collaborators Dupra and Grammer have done several shows together over the years billed as “Words and Music” Grammer with his slam poetry, songs and stories, and Dupra with music and songs, coming together with pieces both musical and theatrical.
