RACONTUERS RAISE THE ROOF
If there’s one talent New Yorkers exhibit, it’s an affinity for storytelling. Nearly everywhere you go in this city, you encounter someone sharing an anecdote, whether it’s an overheard cellphone conversation or a 140-character tweet. However, some yarn-spinners turn storytelling into a true art form, weaving intricate tales from the mundane and extraordinary, some funny, some heartbreaking. Tonight, the Moth is set to “Raise the Roof” at Town Hall with an evening of fabulous fabulists. Hosted by Garrison Keillor, the radio personality behind A Prairie Home Companion, the special all-star evening features stories by Jonathan Ames (creator of “Bored to Death”), humorist Elna Baker, comedian Mike Birbiglia (“Sleepwalk With Me”), novelist Tina McElroy Ansa, and Alan Rabinowitz, as well as musical accompaniment by Mazz Swift. Snag a special VIP ticket for the show and an exclusive after-party with complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres at The Lambs Club.
