Please join host Sofija Stefanovic as she welcomes some of her favorite people for a celebration of immigration!
Each month, at one of New York's finest venues, some fish-out-of-water tell true tales from their lives. Hear anecdotes about language barriers, cultural missteps, rumbles, romance, and more! From addresses to the President, to songs about first kisses, the evening is set to be one of worldly proportions.
On January 9th, uncensored on our stage, we bring you:
Jake Flores (stand up comic and New York Observer columnist)
Gabriel García Román (artist and creator of Queer Icons)
Kay Iguh (writer and educator)
Eli Reiter (storyteller and host of the Muslim-Jewish storytelling show)
Rafia Zakaria (author The Upstairs Wife: An Intimate History of Pakistan and Veil)
...with music from violinist and composer Michelle Ross
and, more special guests to be announced!
Please join us for our first show of 2019! Come for the stories, leave with some feelings – and enjoy drinks, laughs and cries in between.
