Jan 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
NYC Moth StorySLAM: HOME @ Ecuadorian American Cultural Center | New York | United States
The popular open-mic storytelling competition known as Moth StorySLAM is coming to us! The competition is open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme: Home. Come tell us what home means to you… your humble abode, your roots, your heritage or where your mama lives. Or perhaps a dysfunctional swamp with no lifeboat in sight. Whatever it is, we know there’s no place like home!
Don’t want to tell a story? Come enjoy the show. Limited tickets are available. $15.

Location: 43-27 36th St, Long Island City, NY 11101 – 3RD Floor (inside Korea Daily Central)

Virtual Open Mic & Community Share @ Lewis Latimer House Museum
Jun 20 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Virtual Open Mic & Community Share @ Lewis Latimer House Museum | New York | United States

Please sign up to receive details on joining the event.

Join the Lewis Latimer House Museum and Newtown Literary for an culminating open mic event to wrap up our 2020 spring Writing on Race and Immigration series.

We welcome all who have attended any of our workshops to sign up to read work that was generated in or inspired by either: Meher Manda’s “Mapping Your Home in Poetry” class, Stephanie Jimenez’s “Getting to Know Your Characters” class, or Trace DePass’s “Boundless Devotion for Home & Self” class.

The first 10 to register as speakers will be able to share no more than 5 minutes of their prose or poetry on June 20th. Others may sign up for a waitlist to share work if there is time during the Open Mic.

Not interested in sharing, but would like to support your peers and enjoy the work of some of the most creative folks in Queens? You’ll be able to register as an attendee, and receive instructions on how to join the virtual event closer to the date.

The Literature Series “Writing on Race & Immigration” at Lewis Latimer House Museum is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. This workshop is produced in partnership with Newtown Literary.

X Plus One: The Improvised 1940s Sci-Fi Radio Show @ Queens Theatre Online
Aug 29 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
X Plus One: The Improvised 1940s Sci-Fi Radio Show @ Queens Theatre Online | New York | United States

AMNewYork calls X Plus One “the fake sci-fi radio show from the 1940s you never knew you needed!” and Time Out NY says, “You’re in for a wild night!”

If you’re a fan of The Thrilling Adventure Hour and you can recite Forbidden Planet by heart, you’ll love X Plus One, NYC’s only improvised 1940s science-fiction radio show. Journey back in time to the Golden Age of Radio, when our heroes fought bravely against atomic saucers, ray guns, and metal men with their American can-do spirit!

Featuring:
David Armstrong as Spence West
Geoff Grimwood as Spanky Miller
Austin Sanders as Duck McWinn
Rachel Scherer as Mabel Wingate
Libby Zambrano as Rose Royce

NAZIS AND ME
Written and Performed by David Lawson
Hate groups have always been a part of David Lawson’s life, from being a child fearful of a Nazi march, witnessing vandalism and bomb threats at the Jewish Community Center. Nazis and Me is David Lawson’s one-man show about confronting hate set in a time where hateful Americans feel a strong sense of comfort: Right now.
