Tomorow is A Month Of… Next Stop: Unexpected

A Month Of!

A Month Of… Next: Stop Unexpected.

Aug. 14th we are going to have our second show.

A Month Of is a themed open mic where you get to choose the theme.

What sort of stories can be told for, Next Stop: Unexpected? Our fantastic hosts have some great elevator hijinx to tell you. But the theme is open to all sorts of stories. We want to hear where you take the them!

Do have a crazy public transportation story? Perhaps a friend popped up sometime when you weren’t expecting? Best surprise party ever? Maybe life was taking you down the wrong road, just to plop you in the place you really needed to be. We welcome all of your interpretations.

All month long our hosts and fans have been posting stories for you to read and listen to.

Jennifer Hall felt like this was a pretty great take on Next Stop: Unexpected!

I agreed.

Thursday May 23rd Story Swap!

Here’s the Story will be hosting a Story Swap on may 23rd at Roman Susan Art Gallery.

Roman Susan is located at 1224 West Loyola Avenue.

We will be there from 7-9.

We hope to see a lot of journiers there to share stories about the race. I have a couple I’m really looking forward too sharing with people.

The way the evening will work is that we will sit down share some pizza, (feel free to bring food, wine or drinks,) take in the art and if anyone has a story to tell, we’ll listen. Simple as that.

We will be picking up 2 extra large pizzas and any Journey volunteers who show up get first dibs.

Thanks so much everyone who ran with us tonight, it was a real blast. Hope to see a bunch of you again if not on the 23rd than perhaps at another Here’s the Story NFP event or our Sept. 14th Journey.

Congratulations and thank you to Polly Yukevich!

One of the cool things about Here’s the Story is that the audience gets a crack at being art director. You decide who features.

This month, it seems you think it might be pretty cool to have a musical act hit the stage next month. (No pressure, Polly!)

You can follow Polly on twitter, like we do, she’s @PollyYuke. And here is her website: http://yukesukes.com/

There were a lot of wonderful tellers and features and some fantastic hosting from Janna Sobel.

We look forward to seeing you all next month at Theater Wit. And through out this month at all the other great shows around town. Tell us your favorites in the comments!

May Here’s the Story!

Seems like new creative projects are springing up like wildflowers all over town! This season, Chicago people seem inventive and prolific; unafraid to dream new things up, smart enough to test them out within communities of resourceful friends, and willing to put in the work to make them happen.

I used to feel like there was a long distance between the dreams and ideas that lived inside me and the actual world; an almost unbridgeable gulf. I came to Chicago with a heart’s desire to learn to build such bridges, and I couldn’t have chosen a better place to learn. Friends and colleagues here remind me daily of the powerful combination of want and will and wiles, and I am grateful. (I include a gracious tip of the hat, or curtsy… or something more gender neutral?… to my HtS collaborator Dan, for all he continues to teach and discover with me in this regard.)

Our next show features some awesome givers. People who are making and doing very cool things. Read on to learn more about them!
