NYC Storytelling Slam with the Moth

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday November 19

8:00 PM  –  10:00 PM


If you are planning to visit the exhibitions before or after the program, please register separately for a timed admission ticket. 

Join us for an open-mic storytelling competition open to anyone with a five-minute story to share about the theme "New York Attitude".  When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth “hat."  Ten names are picked from the hat and one by one, storytellers take the stage. For storytelling tips and tricks, visit

Come tell a story or just enjoy the show!  

NEW YORK ATTITUDE: Prepare a five-minute story about the empire state of mind. Swagger or sweetness. The tough guys and the little old ladies. Knowing everyone at your bodega, but no one in your building. Bring us your tales of viewpoint adjustments brought about by (or in spite of) the city that never sleeps.
