The beloved monthly variety show returns with another season of music and madness, prose and poetry, high commentary and low comedy. Based on a late 19th century New York show of the same name, Muldoon’s Picnic includes songs written by Pulitzer Prize-winner Paul Muldoon and performed by house band Rogue Oliphant, and an ever-eclectic roster of special guests.
