Live storytelling doesn’t get any better than The Moth Mainstage. One of America’s favorite radio shows is coming back to Portland and the extraordinary performance sells out quickly. It’s an experience not to be missed, so get your get your tickets now and experience unforgettable stories told live!
One of the America’s most loved radio shows, The Moth features stories by luminaries in the arts and sciences, newsmakers and news breakers, and everyday heroes (and even a few reformed villains!). Each Moth Mainstage show features five storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. Beyond a mere theatrical experience, The Moth is an ever-growing community where entertainment, enlightenment and festivity merge.
Our host for this event is Adam Gopnik, a writer, essayist, and commentator who has been on staff at The New Yorker since 1986. During his tenure at the magazine, he has written fiction and humor pieces, book reviews, profiles, and reporting from abroad. His books range from essay collections about Paris and food to children’s novels.
Our storytellers include non-fiction writer Clifton Truman Daniel (grandson of President Harry S. Truman), singer-songwriter Kimya Dawson, veteran stand-up comedian, actor, and writer, Taylor Negron, Portland actor Vin Shambry, and professor of English at Concordia University in Portland, Ceiridwen Terrill.
The Moth Mainstage in Portland is presented by Literary Arts and sponsored in part by Stoel Rives LLP, Needmore, and OPB.
