Long Story Long
October 18, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Long Story Long is a storytelling show created to let the audience get to know the performers a little better. Most stories onstage are just a sliver of a person. Long Story Long offers not just a glimpse, but a video. A chapter instead of a page. A Vine instead of an Instagram.
With more time to share, performers are able to mold their craft in a different and challenging way.
Longform stories allow us to come along with them on their journey.
The show is upstairs at 61 Local, a cute gastropub that serves only local food, wine, and beer.

Opening musical act: Zoë Aqua is a Brooklyn-based violinist.
