Award-winning sci-fi novelist C.S.E. Cooney was in third grade when she wrote her first musical, and the Westerly resident is still pretty theatrical when she’s not working her day job as an audiobook narrator. Medusa Mia is Cooney’s creation, a concert and variety show that combines poetry, dance, and myth with short plays, fancy masks, and songs by Cooney’s alter ego Brimstone Rhine. Got all that? Over a dozen performers will take the stage during the Pay What You Can show, proceeds from which will benefit the Jonnycake Center of Westerly.
