CANCELLED: David Sedaris at the Stiefel Theatre
04/19/2013 8:00 pm
We are very sorry announce that David Sedaris has cancelled his engagement tonight at the Stiefel Theatre.
He is not able to get to Kansas, literally everything has been tried. Due to weather in Chicago yesterday and problems with connections and mechanical difficulties now on his plane this situation is unavoidable.
We hope and plan at some point to reschedule!
For now the Stiefel will be refunding all tickets purchased for David Sedaris on Friday, April 19 at the Stiefel Theatre.
With sardonic wit and incisive social critiques, David Sedaris has become one of America’s pre-eminent humor writers.

His next book is entitled Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls and will be published on April 23, 2013.
