Urban Tellers®

To paraphrase playwright, Tarell Alvin McCraney, “This is theater as community. It is holy theater not because it exalts something on high, but because for the time onstage, the audience and the storyteller are one, and all those people, though each seeing and hearing it slightly differently, are following the same course and going on a journey together.”

Urban Tellers® are fueled by the POWER OF THEIR STORIES and the ENERGY OF THE AUDIENCE. Each storyteller has a mere 10 minutes, and listeners are invited to embark on a shared experience that is a potent blend of vulnerability and heart. Exhilarating. Energizing. Empowering.

Hosted by LYNNE DUDDY and LAWRENCE HOWARD
