Michigan Radio welcomes The Moth Mainstage to Detroit

The Moth Mainstage
Saturday, October 23, 2021

Live story telling returns to Detroit! Michigan Radio and Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts will present a live performance of The Moth Mainstage in Detroit, on Saturday, October 23, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. The show was originally scheduled for June 5, 2020. 

Moth Mainstage features a line-up of writers, performers, and other unique national and Michigan storytellers, each with a ten-minute story to tell live without notes.

Tickets for The Moth Mainstage are on sale now online at https://www.ticketmaster.com. Tickets start at $30. VIP Tickets that include a Meet & Greet with the storytellers are $80-$100 each. The Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts Box Office is currently closed; however, it is scheduled to reopen in September. 

The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. The Moth currently hosts monthly open-mic storytelling competitions (StorySlams) in both Detroit and Ann Arbor. The Moth Mainstage is a curated event featuring a host and five hand-picked storytellers from across the country who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. The annual show has been held in front of sell-out audiences in Ann Arbor, East Lansing, Flint and Dearborn in years past.

The Moth Radio Hour debuted in 2009 and delights audiences on more than 400 public radio stations nationwide. The Moth Radio Hour can be heard on Michigan Radio each Saturday at 12:00 noon and Sunday at 2:00 p.m.

Take a step back to a place where stories are not shown on the screens of computers or phones, but breathed into existence by living storytellers. Join Music Hall Center for the Performing Arts and Michigan Radio for an event where entertainment and enlightenment merge through human experiences and live storytelling with The Moth!
