Tomorrow, at long last: a performance (and then some) by Mecca Vazie Andrews at A Rrose in a Prose

We’ve been begging, bribing, and blackmailing Mecca Vazie Andrews for years to come ¬†down and show the A Rrose in a Prose crowd what she is capable of! And at long last, something happened (possibly a change in prescription drugs?), and she’s given us a hearty “yes!” We don’t even know quite what she is […]
