The Moth Mainstage


What the tellers do on stage is so simple. So ancient and traditional. And so ******* hard.

APR 24, 2020

Following sellouts in 2016 and 2018, The Moth Mainstage returns with a new theme and new tellers for the 10th Anniversary Performing Arts at City Opera House season.

The Moth Mainstage is true stories, told live without notes. Each Moth Mainstage features simple, old-fashioned storytelling, by five wildly divergent raconteurs who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors.

The Moth – hailed as “New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket” by The Wall Street Journal – is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. The Moth has presented more than four thousand stories, told live without notes, by people from all walks of life to standing room only crowds worldwide. Beyond theater, The Moth Mainstage is a community where entertainment and enlightenment merge.

Tune in weekly on Interlochen Public Radio (IPR) 91.5 FM  to hear the Peabody Award-winning The Moth Radio Hour featuring the most beloved tellers, chosen from across The Moth’s programs.

The ideal way to experience The Moth is live and in person, where you can feel the electricity in the room.
