|The show was founded and is hosted by Tracey Segarra, an award-winning Long Island-based storyteller whose stories have appeared on The Moth Radio Hour on NPR and the Risk! podcast. Each show features six storytellers telling true stories from their own lives. Unlike stand-up comedy, therapy or traditional theater, Now You’re Talking features storytellers who undergo a meaningful change or cathartic “aha” moment in their tales. The stories range from hysterically funny to tragically meaningful, to small, quiet moments that signify a shift in how they view the world.
For those not familiar with Bay Shore, it has a thriving downtown with dozens of bars and restaurants within walking distance of the theater and ample parking. It's all reserved seating, so be sure to purchase at the same time as friends and family so you can sit together!
