November 4th Features Feature!

Hello friends! We are proud and pleased to bring you YET another incredible (and yet completely credible) line-up of featured storytellers. There is something very joyful about having the job of going out into the world and recognizing wonderful people who we want to… share with more wonderful people. It is exciting to introduce you to each other, and to watch friendships and creative relationships grow as a result.

This month, we have some beautiful humans joining us to share their thinking, their experiences and their stories. Some of the best people we know, they all also happen to be excellent artists and powerful performers. Here they are, in all their digital informational glory…

Thank You and Congratulations, Cory O’Brien!

Thanks to everyone who joined us on October 7th. We were overjoyed by your company, and as always, appreciate those who brought and shared their stories. Thanks for your courage and humor and insight. It’s what we come together for.

As we experience successes, like the completion of our Kickstarter campaign, (which remains open until 10pm tonight, with unique rewards like season passes for next year), and like having over 100 of you with us in the room last night, it is important to keep clear sight of the reasons this love and support is coming our way.

It is easy to be dazzled or wowed by appreciation and successes, but our responsibility remains one of holding a space that lets people come to share and listen to truths being told. Popularity will wax and wane, but our priority is to remain true to our mission. Even and especially as the size of our audiences grow and we become more involved in producing events, it is very important to us to continue to offer a monthly space that is affordable, inclusive, warm, and allows for things honest and bold and tender and true, in the midst of life that is not always that way.

Thank you all for coming out. If you are a repeat Here’s the Storian, thank you for playing and sharing. And if you have newly discovered us, we hope you’ll come back! It is super cheesy but true, we are Here for you.

Thanks for being here for us.

And special thanks to Cory O’Brien who has graciously accepted the invite to come back next month and feature with us. You told a great tale, and we are excited to see you on November 4th.

With love and gratitude,
Janna and Dan

October 7th Here’s the Story Show!

Good people! We have a delicious line-up of storytellers for your hungry ears at our show on October 7th. We choose features for the interesting lives they lead, their skill as performing artists, and the unique and valuable things they have to share. This month, we bring you five people who elegantly embody all these, and we can’t wait for you to meet them. Keep on coming to Here’s the Story, and keep on watching us prove that the funniest, wisest and most fascinating folks are just like you in lots of ways. Across disciplines, specialties, histories and heritages, we have a lot more in common than we think.

Here’s the Story, Dec 2nd show. An End of Year Prize.

One of the coolest things we have added to this year’s season, and something we will be expanding upon in 2013, is our year-end show on December 2nd. This very special evening will feature a full line-up of your audience favorite walk-up tellers from 2012, and will also be an award ceremony!

On this night, Here’s the Story’s Year-End Prize will be given to the walk-up teller who has been given the most points by our audience over the course of the year. The prize is to have Here’s the Story advertise and produce a one-night performance of your own 45-60 minute solo-show.

We will give you script feedback and direction, and both promote and pay for one night of your solo show at Stage 773. You will have the benefit of community awareness generated through the Here’s the Story friends, family, colleagues, fans and the personal support of an experienced director and producer.

As storytelling is a reciprocal art… giving and giving back endlessly, our Year End Prize is an honor given to the person who garnered the most points from the audience over the entire year. We want to thank you for moving them, the audience, and we want to celebrate your stories.

Nothing Better

I am sitting in an elegantly appointed club car on an antique train, rocking gently around the Puget Sound at the foot of the Cascade mountains. The sun is setting over the water. It has been 3 years since I’ve been able to afford to leave Chicago to travel, and am presently in the midst of an economy-is-the-mother-of-luxury vacation, in which I am determinedly visiting as many of my west-coast relatives as I can while I can afford to be out here near them. This means I get to see eyes and touch hands with my loves in Washington, Northern and Southern Oregon, the California Bay Area and Los Angeles, and Tucson, Arizona. And the many stops mean that I am taking the train, which in turn means that I get to experience the peace and exhilaration of taking the time it takes to move from one place to another, and to see the distance in between.
