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!

To see our entire season at a glance, click on the Season at a Glance submenu on the left.

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!

The Aftermath: Stories of Miracles and Beyond

Doors at 7pm; show at 7:30pm

Do you believe in Miracles? They often come in different shapes, sizes, and forms. And sometimes we don’t even realize they’re happening until years later. This June 2nd Story celebrates the close of our 2013-2014 Season ‘As the Dust Settles’ with one of our most magical shows ever, as we offer you four stories of the miraculous. From a young woman whose college experience is crumbling in front of her, to a young man trying valiantly to come out to his father, this month we end our season with The Aftermath: Stories of Miracles and beyond.

Curated by Julie Ganey. Directed by Lee Stark.
