  • Alleged serial rapist and comedy legend Bill Cosby is still set to play the Lyric in March, two weeks after Hannibal Buress

    Alleged serial rapist and comedy legend Bill Cosby is still set to play the Lyric in March, two weeks after Hannibal Buress
    On March 27, to be exact. Tickets are still on sale on The Lyric's website and a representative for the Lyric confirmed that the show is still scheduled. Via email, Nicoletta Macris, marketing director for the Lyric, told the City Paper, "as of right now [Cosby] is [scheduled]."

City Paper also asked Macris whether the Lyric was concerned about a cancellation, postponement, or ticket buyers demanding refunds, but answers to those questions were not returned.

    Grace Cavalieri's elegiac new book of poems, 'The Man Who Got Away,' mourns her lost husband
    In the sunroom of Grace Cavalieri’s Annapolis home, a sepia photo of a U.S. Navy pilot sits atop a hand-crafted Nakashima table. In the picture Ken Flynn sits in his airplane’s cockpit, his goggles pushed up on his head, his grin brimming with...
