Kevin Kling and Simone Perrin :Kindly Relying on the Strangeness of Others

7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

Kevin Kling -  Feb 10, 2018  @  7:30pm 

Kevin Kling is best known for his popular commentaries on NPR's All Things Considered.  He brings his storytelling stage show Tales from the Charred Underbelly of the Yule Log to the Mabel. Delivering hilarious, often tender stories, his autobiographical tales are as enchanting as they are true to life: hopping freight trains, getting hit by lightning, performing his banned play in                Czechoslovakia, growing up in Minnesota, and eating things before  knowing what they are.

Simone Perrin

Musician and songwriter Simone Perrin grew up on the banks of the upper Mississippi in beautiful Winona, MN.  After some time in New York City, and then Minneapolis, where she met and started working with Kevin Kling, Simone moved to a farm in Wisconsin, where she lives today with her family.  In between trips to the garden and snuggles with her little guys, Simone travels to towns around the Upper Midwest to sing songs and tell stories.  She has appeared on the Prairie Home Companion and has performed with many regional theaters including The Guthrie, Theater Latte Da, Open Eye Figure Theatre, The Cincinnati Playhouse and The Seattle Repertory Theater, where she and Kevin developed two original plays, How? How? Why? Why? Why? and Breakin' Hearts and Takin' Names. In 2009, Simone released her first album Hummingbird available online at
