Upcoming Shows

Below you’ll find the listings for all the performances we have currently scheduled. New performances pop up all the time, though, so keep checking back!

Next to each event you’ll see a little icon. We have a number of different series that we do; each series involves the same 2nd Story style of storytelling you love, but incorporates a different partner element. At our Stories & Wine series, you can opt to partake in a four-wine tasting, where each wine is paired with one of our stories. At our Stories & Live Music series, we partner with a band or single musician to sculpt the evening. At our Stories & Chefs events, we give a stellar chef four stories and they craft four courses inspired by those stories, and the audience gets to experience it all!
