The Moth StorySLAM
Its popularity fanned by a weekly show on NPR, since its inception in New York in 1997, The Moth storytelling series has spun off into touring roadshows and, more recently, has launched satellite storytelling slams in cities around the country, including a monthly slam in Milwaukee where the public is invited to take the stage to share true, five-minute stories without using any notes. Some of the stories are wildly funny, others are intensely dramatic, but all of them create a sense of intimacy between the storyteller and the crowd. This month the stories will be centered around the loose theme “Busted.” Guests can sign up to tell stories or to judge them beginning at 7 p.m.; the stories begin at 8 p.m.
