The Moth Mainstage
New York City storytelling sensation, The Moth Mainstage, makes its Cultural District debut presented by the Cultural Trust and Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures. The theme is "On Point: Stories of Balancing Acts." Consistently a sell-out, each Mainstage show features five storytellers, a local musician to act as timekeeper, and a charismatic host -- in this case, comedian Dan Kennedy, author of "American Spirit," described as "an amusing guy-version of an Eat, Pray, Love odyssey." Storytellers will include David Newell, best known as "Mr. McFeely" on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood.
