Since its 1997 launch in NYC, The Moth has presented thousands of stories told live on stage, without scripts, notes, props, or accompaniment. Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase—each show starts with a theme, and the storytellers explore it, often in unexpected ways. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the shows dance between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
The Moth has an enthusiastic national following, with a podcast that’s downloaded over 30 million times annually, and, each week, the Peabody Award-winning Moth Radio Hour is heard on over 400 radio stations worldwide. The Moth’s first book, The Moth: 50 True Stories was an NYT Bestseller. The Moth’s second book, The Moth Presents All These Wonders: True Stories about Facing the Unknown (Crown Archetype; Hardcover; $25.00), will be published March 21, 2017.
The ideal way to experience The Moth is live and in person, where you can feel the electricity in the room and be a part of the visceral dialogue between teller and audience. Come be a part of it!
[Please note: this program will be recorded for broadcast.]
