SpeakeasyDC
February 28, 2011

I have attended about 20-25 SpeakeasyDC shows over the past 4 years. For 2 hours of solid entertainment, the $10 price of a ticket can't be beat anywhere in the DC area. The stories are always highly entertaining, often thought provoking, and have helped me to appreciate the perspectives of people that come from very different backgrounds that are substantially different from mine. I have never participated in their storytelling lessons (which they call "boot camp" or something like that), however, a couple of my friends have, and I have been very impressed with the results, as have they. Although I haven't necessarly liked literally every single story I've ever heard at SpeakeasyDC shows, I can honestly say that I have never seen anyone on stage who had not clearly put a great deal of time and effort into crafting and polishing their story.

The Great!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

The one and only change I would make is that I would probably try to keep the stories "PG-13," with the possible exception of specific performances where it would be made clear that this was not the intent. In fairness to the organization, their events are for ages 21+, and I have immensely enjoyed the vast majority of the shows that I have attended; however, on occasion a few of the stories at a couple of the shows have been gratuitously raunchy.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I have attended more than 20 SpeakeasyDC performances over the past 4 years.
