Our blog welcomes a return visit from SmartyGirl Lynn Krug. If you missed her book review of Lean In or her review of The Moth event in San Francisco last summer, then click on the links. Take it away, Lynn!
The Moth story telling at Berkeley, California, “Freight and Salvage” Performance space August 2015 was sold out and there is a reason why. People come for the magic. Storytellers are given a story theme weeks earlier, and are chosen to perform as names are randomly pulled out of a hat (a bag actually). The magic dust is showered on the audience and performers alike by the MC, and the audience is alive with the truth tellers and their fans. The laughter, the tears, and revelations all tumble through the story teller and the audience.
