Four very different storytellers take the Inn By Stage and perform stories with a hint of New England.
Tony Toledo has been paying the rent with his mouth since 1990. Kids at elementary schools, libraries, and festivals all yell for more stories. Tony adds sign language to some of his stories since his wife is deaf. They live on a massive tenth of an acre estate with just room enough for his wife's basil, his books and their Corn Museum . Tony is 52 years old but reads at a 67 year old level. He also hosts SPEAK UP! Spoken Word Open Mike every Wednesday evening in Lynn , MA , which has been going strong for two years.
Alicia Quintano has traveled to 38 states telling stories in theaters, universities, coffeehouses, and on the radio. New England appearances include Gloucester Stage Company, Passim's, and First Night Boston.
Andrea Lovett was born talking and telling tales but has been telling professionally since 1992. She tells to audiences of all ages on all stages. She is the co-founder of massmouth and the ever growing series of story slams located in both downtown Boston and Cambridge . On the 28th of March she'll be telling personal stories with lots of humor tucked in.
Laura Lovett is an author and storyteller. She has two novels in progress, has had work published in magazines and has had works read on radio. She's currently a student at UMass Amherst.
With her singing saw in tow, over the years Leigh Calabrese has been humbled to perform with artists including What Time Is It Mr. Fox?, The Sob Sisters, Sukey Tawdry, Beat Circus, The Burlesque Revival Association, and (of course) as part of the soundtrack to countless haunted houses. And yes, it does cut wood.
