Apr. 25: André De Shields, Jon Goode, Tiq Milan, Victor Levenstein, Marguerite María Rivas and More Set for The Moth’s 25th Anniversary Show, HELL-BENT: THE MOTH ON BROADWAY, at the Walter Kerr Theatre

The global storytelling nonprofit THE MOTH is making its Broadway debut with a special storytelling show, HELL-BENT: THE MOTH ON BROADWAY, at the Walter Kerr Theatre on Monday, April 25th. Doors open at 6pm, show begins at 7pm. Tickets are $35 – $100, www.themoth.org

Author, poet, playwright and Moth storyteller Jon Goode will host the evening which will feature stories from Tony, Grammy and Emmy winning Hadestown star André De Shields; journalist and human rights activist Tiq Milan; author Victor Levenstein; and Staten Island Poet Laureate Marguerite María Rivas.

Featuring true tales about the bound and determined. Ditching the old in search of the new, throwing caution to the wind, and the nerve to gamble it all. Whole-hearted and single-minded. The road to redemption…or the path to destruction. Pedal to the metal!

The Broadway bow celebrates both the organization’s 25th anniversary as well as the launch of its new book, How to Tell a Story: The Essential Guide to Memorable Storytelling from The Moth (Crown; Hardcover), which will be released on April 26th. Click here to purchase the book.
