Theatre L’Homme Dieu’s 59th Season

December 4

Garden Bar on 6th

If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him… We must never forget that art is not a form of propaganda; it is a form of truth. ~ John F. Kennedy

[Thus, seeking nourishment, the Super and I sought out fellow fans of Theatre L’Homme Dieu and found them happily ensconced at the Garden Bar on 6th.  A shout out to Mahrie Ohren for venue hosting the TLHD 2019 announcement party . . . ]
