MINI SERIES — U R [star]
OBERON Presents
October 13 - November 6, 2016

By Finkle
A graphic-novel, musical experience presented in the artist’s apartment for audiences of five people. Told through music and hand-drawn visuals, this whimsical and intensely personal journey is an experiment in the relationship between audience and artist and an exploration of what it means to grapple with darkness.

In the event that tickets become available for a sold-out performance, wait list tickets will be sold in person at OBERON from ten minutes before the performance.  Look for the U R ★ representative to purchase.  All wait list tickets are cash only.
