What is Long Story Short?

Long Story Short is a bare-bones storytelling series free of pretense and over-rehearsed monologues. The show throws a mix of professional writers, performers and average folks who have no public speaking experience whatsoever on stage with just a mic and a spotlight to tell a personal story based on that show’s theme. What makes Long Story Short unique is the off-the-cuff feel of many of the stories, including each show’s one open mic slot, aka "the Pink Pumpkin" — not even the host knows what’s going to happen.
