Event Description

New late-night programming at Perishable Theatre:

Do you feel like a fake? Have you ever faked anything? Have you ever been accused of being a fake? You want to tell us about it?

If you have a story that is any way, shape, or form related to our February theme, “Fake it ‘til You Make It,” then come on down to LIVE BAIT and tell it or watch others tell theirs. If you do want to talk about it, all you have to do is sign up at the door, and when it’s time, we’ll call your name. It’s that easy. No notes, no rants, just tell your story like you’re telling your friends over a couple of drinks. There is a five-six minute time limit, please respect it (we mean it this time).

All are encouraged, performers and non-performers alike. Come play or watch this evening of funny, gut-wrenching, scary, enlightening, soul-baring, Real-Life Stories.

LIVE BAIT is hosted by Phil Goldman

Phil Goldman has been an improvisational actor, a Thai jungle guide, a Tai Chi instructor, and was almost a male stripper in Tokyo (too hairy). His life choices have left him with nothing but stories to tell.
