When we chose, “No God, Please No!” as our theme for June’s Tell It: Brooklyn, we had no idea just how fun it was going to be. Not only did it make for a ton of incredible story pitches, but it’s given us countless, “Who’s on first,” moments whenever we’ve been asked what the show’s about this month.
We’re thrilled to be featuring 5 storytellers who will all be hitting the Tell It: Brooklyn stage for the very first time, two of whom are named Nate(haniel).
We’d love you to come out and meet our new friends.

Jean Le Bec
