Event Description

"Stories to Scenes" is a monthly collaboration between a comedy improv troupe (Improv Jones Boston) and four storytellers (booked by Massmouth).  Each teller shares a 5-minute tale.  After each story, the troupe deftly swipes a series of ideas, phrases, or characters from the story, and, on the spot, serves up hilarious comedy scenes that turn the story upside down and inside out.  Fascinating and hilarous!

This month our tellers are Hal Miller-Jacobs, Robert Isenberg, Dan Dahari, and Stirling Smith
