if they could see me now 

Named the “gold standard” in storytelling by the Washington Post, voted one of the top 3 open mics in DC by the Washington City Paper, and nominated for the 2012 DC Mayor's Arts Awards for Innovation in the Arts, Story District is one of the most well-known and respected storytelling organizations in the country. Our monthly storytelling series -- our first program -- has been taking place on the 2nd Tuesday of every month in Washington, DC since 1997. Over the years, we've added tons of other shows and events, but our monthly show remains Story District's backbone. Tonight's show, like all of our shows, will feature a mix of eight to ten first-timer storytellers and regulars, who will take the stage to share their twist on the night's theme. And if you have a story to tell on this theme, pitch it to us! If your story is selected, you'll have a rehearsal and the support of our most senior coach, Stephanie Garibaldi.
