You guys! I am totally all a-twitterpated from our super 6-Month anniversary edition of Tell It: Brooklyn. I’m telling you, the show was so good. Really good. Super duper good.
Thanks so much to all the brave folks who dropped their name in the can and a special shout out to the lucky few who got picked to take our Tell It stage and share their “Take Off” Tales with us. (XOXO’s to: Hillery, Christina, Nickie, Marc, Chase, Melissa & Matthew. You were all fantastic!)
From a date-crashing dad in short shorts, to an inspired escape plan from dorm security, to an obedient teenager being forced to break curfew when his friends got him lost in the wilds of South Jersey … every story was riveting and touching and hilarious! We really appreciate everyone being open to sharing their shame, secrets and triumphs with us. (We eat that stuff up!)
We also had a fantastic lineup of our local favorites including Amy Marsh, Red Durkin and The Way Station’s own, Jim Greene who is as incredible at telling (scandalous) stories as he is at slinging cocktails. Of course, Victoria, Chloe and I performed as well and IMHO, we did a damn fine job ourselves.
We gave out gift bags with toys and fake tattoos and custom Tell It: Brooklyn notebooks so everyone could go ahead and get started on their stories for May 16: Mother, May I? We also raffled off a bottle of Mt. Gay rum, courtesy of our beloved The Way Station, which was won by the incomparable Red Durkin who also shared the tie-win with Jim Greene.
It really was an amazing night and I can not wait for the next one! I mean, seriously. Who doesn’t have a mother story?
