Relationships and community are essential for a happy life, and so is time alone. Whether we're making a difficult decision, processing grief, or trying to reconnect with who we truly are, times of solitude can be a catalyst for big ideas and transitions. This show will explore what happens when we decide to go it alone. Expect to hear stories about taking bucket-list-style trips, making life-altering decisions, and managing our inner monologues.

Featured storytellers:
Mary Jo Brown
Daniel Moran
Ryan VanDalinda
Nadine Hill
Kristy Martino



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.
