We've all had a middle school crush we couldn't get out of our head. Obsessively doodling their name on everything, making stupid decisions, embarrassing ourselves. The theme "Love on the Brain" covers those tales, but it also covers the times we did something we didn't want to do for someone we love, and times we were blinded to all the red flags because we were wearing rose colored glasses. The head and the heart just don't always cooperate with each other now, do they?

About Long Story Short:
Long Story Short is not just a storytelling event. It’s an opportunity to share the funniest moments life brings us, the deepest human emotions, and the strangest day of your life with complete strangers. This bare-bones storytelling series, hosted by Beth LaMontagne Hall, is free of pretense and over-rehearsed monologues. The show throws a mix of professional writers, performers, and average folks who have no public speaking experience whatsoever on stage with just a mic and a spotlight to tell a personal story based on that show’s theme. What makes Long Story Short unique is the off-the-cuff feel many of the stories have, including each show’s one open mic slot. A brave volunteer from the audience is selected at random and must take the stage in a moment’s notice to open the second half, — not even the host knows what’s going to happen.
