This is a re-post of an article written by Steve Chrypinski from Michigan Radio News.
There was a time when stories were not shared on the singular screens of computers, but breathed into existence by living performers. Join Michigan Radio and Wharton Center in reveling within one of the most profound and ultimately human experiences of live storytelling through The Moth Mainstage: Twist of Fate coming to Wharton Center in East Lansing for one night only on Wednesday, May 28 at 7:30 p.m.
Grown from summer night storytelling on a Georgia porch and curated to perfection by the New York atmosphere, The Moth Mainstage: Twist of Fate draws from real-world heroes and artists, giving them nothing more than a stage and a microphone. This bare-bones style allows for the individuals to weave their tales, sometimes funny and outrageous, sometimes deeply stirring and profound, and enables the audience to absorb the stories in a culturally traditional, yet singularly powerful format.
Having played to sold-out performances in Detroit, Grand Rapids, and Ann Arbor, The Moth Mainstage will be making its first Lansing area appearance. Tickets are available online at whartoncenter.com, at the Wharton Center Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
