"Outré actor-writer Salty Brine (Clown Bar) continues his spectacular Living Record Collection Cabaret series with a new piece that imagines Joni Mitchell's Blue as the soundtrack of an epic sea adventure."

"There really is no way to prepare yourself for this spectacle, but it helps if you get in early, get comfortable, and order Martinis...A performance that rocks wildly amongst the currents of the silly and sorrow. You’ll probably also leave feeling guilty about having only paid 10 bucks for a ticket. I haven’t laughed like that in a long time."
