Savvy New Yorkers and listeners of WNYC and NPR have known about “The Moth” for more than a decade now. Their storytelling events (and the corresponding radio show) celebrate the age-old tradition of storytelling and the power of the experience, for both the teller and the listener. Far beyond a mere theatrical experience, the performances merge entertainment, enlightenment and festivity.
Radio host and novelist Kurt Andersen hosts this Mainstage event where, under the cloak of darkness in Green-Wood’s historic atmosphere, five virtuoso raconteurs will tell captivating true tales, all connected to each other by a central theme. Touching, comedic, profound, and deeply personal, the tales take on a life of their own. After the show, audience members and storytellers alike will continue swapping stories over drinks admist the Green-Wood landscape.
