We’re Big Fat Liars

So, you know how we’ve been talking about 2010 and making a big deal about our FIRST EVENT? “Come to the First StorySlam of the year!” “It’s at L’Etage!” “It’s on January 26th!”

Well, we’re big fat liars.

Because the first event of 2010 for First Person Arts ISN’T the StorySlam at L’Etage.

See… when our people tell us they like something, we listen. When our people pack L’Etage month after month for StorySlams, we notice. And it makes us feel like we should do more, give more of what the people want. We wondered: why have one StorySlam each month, when we can have TWO?

Announcing… First Person Arts StorySlams at World Café Live! Second Mondays of every month from January through October 2010. This is an all-ages event. There’s parking, plus great food and drink from the World Cafe Live menu.


And this is in ADDITION to StorySlams at L’Etage, the fourth Tuesday of every month.

This means that the actual, for reals, honest-to-God, very very FIRST First Person Arts event of 2010 will be our inaugural StorySlam at World Café Live on Monday, January 11th. The theme is Home for the Holidays and our host is Philly actor and musician, David Sweeny. Some of you may already know David as Johnny Showcase, last seen in the 2009 Fringe Festival hit, Purr, Pull, Reign: A Litigious Fantasy in D. He’s a funny fellow, that David Sweeny, and he’s going to make a great host.

You can find the nitty-gritty on showtimes, tickets and more here.
