A Victoria Scroggins/Susan Kent Curated Joint for 2013.
Happy New Year, y’all!
How were your holidays? Did you make it through your family stuff? Are you in financial recovery and emotional detox?
We feel ya.
You know what we all need? A night out, just us – hanging, drinking a beer and sharing stories. Doesn’t that sound perfect?
Well, my friends, done and done.
Victoria and I are pulling together some of our favorite storytellers from the NYC scene for an incredible new curated show that we’re calling:
Tell It: Booked’lyn
The 1st Monday of every month, we will feature 3 incredible performers who will share their true, real-life, awesomely amazing personal stories, live, right in front of your face.
I know. Amazing, right? But, wait, there’s more!
Victoria and I did get our storytelling start with our open mic, Tell It: Brooklyn, so what would a Tell It [colon] show be without some audience participation? It wouldn’t be a Scroggins/Kent joint, that’s for sure.
So, we’re also gonna let YOU drop your name in a hat (or other receptacle) for a chance to tell your own true, real-life, awesomely amazing 5-minute story onstage in front of OUR faces. How f’in cool is that?
Let me tell you, we are bringing it hard for our first show. We’ve got Jeff Simmermon of And I Am Not Lying, Dawn J. Fraser from Barbershop Stories, and the one and only Mara Wilson (recently featured on Risk!, so you know she’s the shit.)
Now, take a moment and put Tell It: Booked’lyn in your calendar for Monday, January 28 at Superfine* in DUMBO. We’re opening doors at 7 & the show starts at 8. Your $6 cover gets you a raffle ticket for some incredibly useful prizes AND a buck off your first drink at the bar – not to mention a night of the best stories you ever done heard. (No age limit, but you’ve gotta be 21+ to drink, obv.)
Talk to you soon,
*Superfine is an awesome restaurant/bar whose regular biz hours are Tuesday – Sunday. Food will not be available during our show, though the bar will be wide open.
