Harris Cashes Out!
Bell Tower Theater
from 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
by Londos D’Arrigo
Forty years ago, Harris Wellborn wrote an off-Broadway musical that closed after one performance. Now Harris is down on his luck, living in a run-down apartment dependent on the charity of his domineering sister—but still dreaming of making it on Broadway. His life takes a hilarious turn when he meets the flaky young woman down the hall and her scheming boyfriend comes up with a devious plan to cash in on Harris' past.
