THE THEME OF THE NIGHT waS “A LOVE LETTER TO…”
Thanks for a great show!
This month, we want to hear what’s in our performers’ hearts. A Love Letter To… invites our superstar storytellers to share with us an ode to something that they hold dear, that’s an important part of their story. Maybe it’s birth control or being brave or babka. Maybe it’s something that’s always sparked joy for them, or maybe they’ll share with us a more complex idea, person, or theme that they’ve come to love over the years. One things for sure: you’re not going to want to miss this lovely show.
