Santa Fe Variety Show THE JULESWORKS FOLLIES: THE NAUGHTY NINETEENTH Set for Tonight at Teatro Paraguas
Julesworks presents edition nineteen of Santa Fe's Monthly Variety Show, The Julesworks Follies, tonight, October 26th at 7 pm. Julesworks is calling this, the 19th show, the Naughty Nineteenth for no legitimate reason. It will be at a new venue, the cozy Teatro Paraguas, at 3205 Calle Marie.
The host is Eric Davis, an actor, musician, promoter and man about town who works for Santafe.com and Hutton Broadcasting. Eric will also present his rendition of Poe's The Raven. Eric gigs with several bands, performs in an array of hats, and in a previous Follies edition, he presented, with Jules, a staged reading of their original short The Odder Couple.
