WBUR is proud to present The Moth Mainstage on Thursday, June 8th at 7:30pm at the Somerville Theatre.
The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. In its 20-year history, The Moth has presented more than 20,000 stories, told live and without notes, by people from all walks of life to crowds worldwide. The Moth podcast is downloaded more than 44 million times a year and Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour airs weekly on more than 450 public radio stations nationwide.
The Moth Mainstage is where entertainment and enlightenment merge with live stories told by luminaries in the arts and science, newsmakers and news breakers, everyday heroes and even a few reformed villains! Each show five wildly divergent raconteurs who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors.
Peter Aguero, Moth instructor, GrandSLAM champion and lead singer of The BTK Band, will emcee the show with storytellers Joseph Gallo, Desmond Jumbam, Nina Livingstone and more to be announced!
