Broken Records

With the *possible* exception of the 2008 Grand Slam, Saturday night’s crowd in the Commonwealth Plaza at the Kimmel Center may have been the largest EVER gathered for a First Person Arts storyslam!  The winner was Ira A with his story about an extraordinary casserole that could only have been assembled under the most impoverished of circumstances.  Congratulations, Ira, and see you at the 2009 Grand Slam!  And we’ll see the rest of you tomorrow night at L’Etage!

January 27th

Host: Victor Fiorillo
Location: L’Etage Cabaret at 6th and Bainbridge (above Creperie Beau Monde)

Here, first time storyteller Gail shares a story about her father’s broken bone before a rapt crowd:
