Nine monthly storytelling events in the greater Boston area plus the new PBS World Channel / Massmouth TV production “Stories from the Stage” are highlighted in this article. Some of these shows sell out.

Massmouth co-founder Norah Dooley explains this popularity: People come because “story is an essential part of human connection that everyone craves.”

One of the other storytelling event organizers, Javed Rezayee, says: “When you’re doing a funny story, you hear an audience laugh with you. When you’re doing a serious story, you can hear a pin drop. To connect with these strangers, that’s a powerful thing to experience.”
