Holiday Show and Year End Prize!

Hello beautiful Here’sthestorians! We are proud and pleased to announce our very first year-end holiday show! Dan and I have put a lot of work into dreaming this up for you, and think it’s going to be a really special night.

This show’s format will be different from usual, as we’ll be featuring 100% Audience Favorite tellers from the course of the year. There will be no walk-up slots; just your favorite Chicago tellers, gracing you with 8-minutes of their storytelling magic. As always, there will be a potluck dinner (we are hoping grand holiday feast style!) and great friends and community. The event is casual as ever, but if you’d like to get a little fancy, or costume it up, please do!

Thanks and Congratulations go out to Scott Whitehair

Scott will be invited back to feature again! Be sure to check out his other work through out the month, be it, This Much is True, Do Not Submit, Story Lab, or one of the places he’ll be featuring around town.

He’s also doing a special show out in NY next weekend. All of his shows as well as other awesome Chicago live lit shows can be found on our calendar. (This calendar was originally set up by Aria Alexander Manifold and is maintained by a number of people.)

So thanks to everyone who dropped points on all the tellers who told this year. In Nov. we had more sheets turned in than ever before and we hope a lot of you get to make it back for our big holiday show coming up.

Here’s the Story Invites Darren Stephens Back

It was a record number of points given out this month and a pretty tight race. In the end we have sent out a request to Darren Stephens to come back.



Darren has worked as a voice over artist in the midwest market for years and you can learn more about him and his work at Speak by Design.

Last night was beautiful, I couldn’t get that word out of my head all night. Each story seemed really pretty to me. Well crafted and full of lush images, well imagined and the whole thing had a great feel goodness about it.

Congratulations Christopher Gatsby!

Whether it was because of his long drive in, you’re loving the sounds of piano and guitar, or the charming red faced smile when he slow rolled that second verse to his ballad, you voted him up to the tune of 427 points. Thanks! We’ve sent him the invite and he’s told us, “I can’t wait to make that six and a half hour trip again!” Thanks Chris. And thanks everyone who came out last night to support the show, you were a fantastic audience to ringleader for.

I am wicked tired and so you can expect to see the podcast and a tighter write up go live sometime after Saturday. But I wanted to make sure the announcement was made by today.

Back on July 30th Here’s the Story went to This Much is True: Sept 7th they’ll be putting on Interface 2.0

So this is another sad tale from the lost bag file. As time moves forward I realize more and more things that I’d had in the bag that weren’t backed up anywhere else. A cautionary tale to everyone. Don’t procrastinate. Write your articles in a timely fashion. Unfortunately due to my procrastination, I’m missing all of my photos and notes for this show, and for Words that kill. This show, is a particular bummer because I had some super cool shots.

Deanna and Scott are gracious hosts and good friends of Here’s the Story, so clearly, I’m always welcome, but I was specially invited to this show by Kim Morris. I first heard her tell at Story Club. She read a brutal piece about the loss of a friend and subsequently we’ve been running into each other at shows ever since. For instance, I saw her at the Tuesday Funk a while back. And I’ll be seeing her at our Journey to the End of the Night. If you’re interested in seeing her brand of story telling, you can check her out at Fringe Fest.

But these are the two kids I want to tell you about today:

Postcard From Interface to Elizabeth’s Crazy Little Thing!

Interface

I went and saw Interface last night. It was good, real good. So good it certainly deserves a fully cooked article. But for those of you who didn’t get to attend that sold out show I’ve got a postcard snapshot from the show to show you right now. Unfortunately alone for this show, I was seated between four lovely ladies, I asked the two to my right if they’d put some musing about the show on paper. One cordially accepted my invitation.
