Cory Mc Abee's 'Small Star Seminar' says

The performance features a singing motivational speaker who urges people to give up their goals, stop reaching for the stars and to start looking for the stars within their own minds. The set features optimistic songs about quitting, accepting one’s own limitations, and the power of sitting quietly. As an encore McAbee will address the theory of “Deep Astronomy” and answer questions from the audience. This tour is being documented for use in an upcoming feature film, written and directed by Cory McAbee. Audience participation is welcome.
