Review for Story District, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This was our first experience with SpeakeasyDC and we had a blast. We were invited by friends to attend and it was standing room only. The performers were hilarious. It was a combination of great story telling and stand up comedy. Each performer had honed their skill so it was truly a pleasure to listen and watch the performance. There were no "ums" and "ahs" as all were excellent at the craft of story telling. If they were nervous, it did not show. The theme of Valentines Day for sucker stories ranged from love unspoken to stalker love, to sexy love ("wrong hole, wrong hole") to the most wonderful of all - true love. The venue was great. A little bit of a dive, but thankfully NO smoking. We did not come home reeking which is always a pleasure. We will attend again and look forward to the next show!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the art of story telling at its best. It is wonderful to see that people can take a personal experience and then translate it for an audience and make it so enjoyable to listen to.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Really nice. I met Amy S. and felt I already knew something about her since I become a fan on facebook.

Thanks for your comments and suggestions. For those of you with a similar desire to see shows on weekends -- you're in luck. "Wetbacks, Aliens & Towelheads: Stories from the First Generation" will take place Friday, Feb 26 and Saturday, Feb 27. Also, we will have several weekend performance during the Capital Fringe Festival in July. We'll keep adding more.

Also... yes, we are looking for bigger venues. Feel free to send suggestions to info@speakeasydc.org. We would consider weekend matinees if we thought people would come. So, if anyone out there is interested, let us know.
