I think were all just a little bit off, says Abbe Stutsman, executive director of Stories on Stage, and so it was easy to pull together Stories on Stage: Eccentrics Unlimited, the first full-length program for this years edition of the series.

Eccentrics Unlimited runs at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. today at Su Teatro at the Denver Civic Theatre, 721 Santa Fe Drive; admission is $15 to $25, with sliding-scale and pay-what-you-can prices also available. And dont forget the post-stories milk-and-cookie reception! Visit www.storiesonstage.org or call 303-494-0523 for more information.
