Event Description

Stories to Scenes is a monthly collaboration between storytellers and a comedy improv troupe.  During the evening, 4 riveting stories are shared.  After each story, the improv troupe lovingly grabs ideas, characters, situations, or turns-of-phrase from the story, and weaves a series of hilarious improvised scenes.  

Massmouth provides the storytellers and Improv Jones Boston provides the improvisors.  This month's tellers:  

Mike Cohen

Xasmin Garza

Terence Pennington, Jr. 

Brendyn Schneider

8-9:15pm at The Riot Theater
