The Mountain State has its Stage and the Tiny Desk, its Concert. This concert season Alaskans will gather at Parlor In The Round. Borrowing from the guitar pull tradition of porches and campfires, songwriters from all walks of Alaskan life (and some beyond) will trade songs and stories as they are inspired by each other and the audience. After the intermission, tradition is cast aside as the musicians dive into collaborations, jocular inventions and premeditated musings all based on written submissions from the audience Kevin Worrell hosts this dinner theater, drawing out the strength and vulnerability of each artist while holding the crowd closely throughout the performance. The Bear Tooth Theaterpub, sets the stage for this dinner theater and a hush falls over the crowd. Expect to lean in and laugh out loud at Parlor in the Round.

The list of things that we can achieve in perfect unison as a community is very short. Silence is one of them. At Parlor, In The Round, our audience holds a "listening room" atmosphere during the performance. Smiles and laughter are encouraged! Sidebar conversations are strictly prohibited.

"The Parlor creates another opportunity for them to put down their devices, go out on a dinner date, socialize within the community, and take in the beauty radiating from the stage." Darren Smith - Anchorage Press

“If you open yourself up to get weird and to get honest then it (PITR) rewards you. I’ve learned to just let it go and let it happen. ‘Cause it’s fun, but every time I do it, the week of, I’m literally cursing Kevin’s name. I gotta make up a song about farts or moose, but then the second that I am in it, it is sooo worth it. [The audience] is able to huddle in, take part in it,” he said. “What really makes it work is that moment of connection. It leads into the whole community health piece that I really recognize.” Nick Carpenter - Medium Build
