THE PIANO HAS BEEN DRINKING: A TOM WAITS CABARET

Tom Waits is a Skid Row poet laureate, a self-styled town crier for the Raymond Chandler set, whose whiskey-soaked waltzes, carny come-ons, and film-noir spoken-word pieces painted a vivid urban underworld in the seventies and early eighties. But the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer transformed into a junkyard shaman after his gravelly roar shredded his vocal cords to fine-grit sandpaper. He's long been a muse to the people of Little Green Pig Theatrical Concern, who pay him cabaret tribute at their fund-raisers in Hillsborough and Durham. More than a dozen local theater stalwarts will perform, including Germain Choffart, Dana Marks, and Jaybird O'Berski. Madeleine Pabis hosts. —Byron Woods
