On Tuesday, December 15, The Metropolitan Museum of Art will celebrate the tradition of The Moth, a non-profit with undeniable dedication to narrative performance, with The Moth at the Met: American Stories. Storytellers will use the portraiture in two current exhibitions, Looking In: Robert Frank's The Americans and American Stories: Paintings of Everyday Life, 1765-1915, as inspiration for ten-minute long first-person narrative pieces. The evening, which starts with a cocktail hour provided by Harpoon Brewery, will be hosted by scribe of HBO's Bored to Death, novelist Jonathan Ames, with stories by NPR's Starlee Kine and TV on the Radio and Rain Machine's Kyp Malone. He's gonna tell the story of when he met the dude with a gianter beard/hair combo than him. Just kidding that story doesn't exist! Purchase tickets here.
