Remember that thing below our feet? You know, the sidewalk? It's so exciting that we can finally leave the house NOT looking like the Michelin Man.
The snow is melting and our souls are thawing. The season is about to get better as we hear wonderful stories from some very talented raconteurs
Tonight, Jeff Rose and Nisse Greenberg share longform stories.
The unparalleled Sam Dingman will guest host while Eli is away on "business" in Washington.
Jeff Rose is a wanderer and writer. He's competed as a Moth GrandSlam finalist and is guest hosting at Cornelia Street Cafe’s New York Story Exchange. Though his writing and web projects have won Best of’s, Webby’s, etc., Jeff is proudest that the Austin American-Statesman’s A-List once critiqued him as “too polite by one-half" when a server forgot his meatloaf.
Nisse Greenberg is attempting to be more vulnerable. He is the creator of Bad Feelings, Drawn Out Storytelling, and VHS Presents. The Future of Storytelling said his “commitment to the storytelling craft is infectious” which makes him sound like a virus on the right side of the law!nissegreenberg.com

There are many storytelling shows out there that offer a slice of life. At the corner of Fringe Festival Street and The Moth Avenue, Eli Reiter offers us a larger piece of the pie giving each performer 25 minutes to tell their true story. Long Story Long allows you, the audience, to get to know the storyteller a little better. We'll also have a featured storyteller in the middle, to be the extra crust around the pie. Who doesn't like extra pie?
Come as a crowd, leave as a community.
