Here is a story I told earlier this week, on the evening of Monday August 11th, at Toscanini's in Central Square. A whole bunch of us showed up for the very first meeting of MassMouth, the new Massachusetts Association of StorytellerS. We each told a tale on the theme of money, and it was terrific! We even had a couple of audience members - folks chilling at Tosci's, watching and having a good time - hop up in front of the camera and tell some tales spontaneously - fantastic! The area's best ice cream and tellers combined to create an unbeatable combination of tasty entertainment, graced by the presence of Brother Blue and Ruth Hill. Filming the performances was the graceful and talented Norah Dooley, who, along with Andrea Lovett, first came up with the idea of MassMouth. Thank you Norah and Andrea!
Gus Rancatore, owner and proprietor of Toscanini's (and Rancatore's in Lexington and Belmont - yummy!) was our gracious host; so taken was he by the Tellings, and the interest shown by his customers, that he invited us back on Monday September 8th, where we will tell tales on the theme of "School". You can find us there at 7pm, 899 Main Street, Cambridge, MA. Come and tell!
