The Moth's All City Program was featured by Columbia University's EdLab, on their "Seen in NY" series! This video features SEVERAL of my absolute favorite humans and the best way to spend Saturdays I've ever known. Check it out below and tell me what you think! If you or someone you know wants to join The Moth's All City team, they can do it here.
Talking to Josue Cardona was one of the unexpected delights of this past winter. We nerded out over storytelling and therapy in the lovely cafe at the Grand Army Plaza branch of the Brooklyn Public Library. You can listen in on our whole conversation, and learn more about this awesome podcast, here.
Guess what? "The Secret Life of Your Third Grade Teacher" has been accepted into the NYC International Fringe this summer! I'm not sure of the dates yet but if you would like to stay updated, sign up for my mailing list here.
I am thrilled to announce the first-ever telling of my new solo show, about teaching and love. It's this Friday, December 11th at 7 pm, as part of The Tank Theater's SOLOWeek Festival. You can get tickets and information here! I hope to see you there-- I am so excited and also terrified, and that's a pretty good place to be 3 days before a show.
Check out what happens with high school and The Moth. It's my favorite.
I just wanted to share a way I've been telling stories lately that has been really meaningful for me. Click here to read a short piece about it...
Merry Christmas, everybody. I mean, I don't celebrate, but I am totally tolerant of Christmas.
I've got a lot of shows coming up in January. After a solid week of hibernating in my apartment, it will be fun to see if I can still be a normal human being! (If by normal I mean revealing personal details about my life in front of a microphone…) Here they are:
Saturday, January 4th, 6:00 pm: THE LIAR SHOW at Cornelia Street Cafe
Tuesday, January 7th, 9:30 pm: CAMP SUNSHINE at the PIT Theater
get tickets here!
Monday, January 13th, : SOUNDTRACK SERIES at Le Poisson Rouge
get $5 tickets here! Or $8 tickets at the door...
Wednesday, January 15th: THE MOTH NYC GRANDSLAM at Music Hall of Williamsburg
this sells out fast… so get 'em while you can!
Hope to see you at one of them-- they are ALL shows I'm really excited about...
I was so excited to join The Moth in Oklahoma City last week for the Mainstage show. The theme was "Learning Curves." I got to hang out with amazing folks, including Shannon Cason, Trisha Mitchell Coburn, Dan Kennedy, Rachel Hubbard Smith, Alexandra Rosas, and of course Moth producer Kirsty Bennett and Moth director Maggie Cino. Dan Kennedy and I reminisced about the band we had in the mid-90's, Chip Dip and the New Experience. (You can get our album on cassette, used, on eBay-- but we never digitized any of our songs. Dan thought it took the soul of a song if you digitized it.)
I'll be at a few of the StorySLAMs coming up, putting my name in the hat, and I'll also be telling stories at a couple shows in the next month or so:
OCTOBER 18: SOUNDTRACK SERIES AT THE MUSEUM OF THE MOVING IMAGE in QUEENS, NY
NOVEMBER 9: SPEAK UP at REAL ART WAYS in HARTFORD, CT
NOVEMBER 14: ARMANDO DIAZ EXPERIENCE at MAGNET THEATER in NYC
