These stories will enter your hearts and leave you transformed.
In June, The Good Men Project did something special. We hosted an event at The West End in New York City where seven storytellers told true 10-minute tales in front of a live audience. We’ve all heard stories before, and we all know people who are good storytellers, though we’d be hard pressed to explain exactly why they excel at it. The secret—which isn’t really a secret—is that storytellers shine when they are real, raw, and vulnerable, when they share from the heart and hold nothing back, enabling the audience to experience a sweep of feeling with them—pain, joy, confusion, redemption. The event was a stunning, standing-room-only success—and so we’re doing it again, on Thursday, August 6, at 6:00 p.m. You can purchase tickets here.
For each event (we hold them bi-monthly) there’s a theme. In June it was Finding My Voice. For August, our theme is Arrivals and Departures. August is traditionally a month of travel—for vacations, family visits, summer camps for children—but the theme is broader than physical transport, and our storytellers will be spinning tales of all the types of comings and goings that influence and define our lives.
Previous storytellers included Bill Bosch, Lisa Duggan, Thomas Fiffer, Lisa Hickey, Mark Greene, Michael Kasdan, and Jackie Summers—all writers and/or editors for The Good Men Project. You can watch videos of their amazing stories below.
Our storytelling events are produced by Ina Chadwick of MouseMuse Productions, whose shows have entertained audiences in New York City and Fairfield County, CT for years.
There is no experience quite like watching a live story unfold before your eyes and allowing the storyteller to transport you to places in his or her heart, head, or psyche, places you may be reluctant to visit because you know you will come home transformed.
Seating is limited, but a number of tickets are still available. Please join us for a unique and memorable evening. Come hear the storytellers and meet the writers whose columns you’ve been reading. Experience The Good Men Project as a community instead of a publication. We promise a night you will not forget.
