2nd Story @ Strawdog Theater


This Friday 2nd Story will be at Strawdog Theater. 2nd Story is a hybrid performance event combining storytelling, wine, and music that is produced by the Serendipity Theater Collective. It's got the polished, dynamic feel of a theatrical event in a relaxed atmosphere. Megan Stielstra, Director of Story Development, sums up their M.O. as "the best stories I've ever heard come from hanging out with friends over a good bottle of wine. That's when people really start talking, really get to the meat of their experiences - the wild beauty of it all, the destruction and the hope. That's the feeling we're going for: the intimacy of my own living room and the crazy secrets that have been told there." Friday's theme is Body Movin'. Featured readers are Nick Kawahara, Johanna Stein, Jen Shin and Byron Flitsch. Strawdog Theater, 3829 N. Broadway. Tickets are $10. Friday, May 28. Doors open at 10:30pm, stories at 11pm.
