THE SHOW IS MOVING ONLINE

— and we have a KILLER line up!

These are weird, dark times but this show will bring you connection and light, I promise.

Details below, but the Cliff notes are:

Mon March 23rd @ 7:30pm ET

Live on Zoom — link to be announced, if you’d like it emailed to you (along with instructions for how to join), click here:

THE ALL-STAR LINE-UP:

Spencer West
Arianne Shaffer
Chris Graham
Sage Tyrtle
Ali Hassan

Hosted by me, Marsha from Yes Yes Marsha.com

FREE (though we’ll be taking optional donations for all performers)

This is the first time we’ve gone show online but if this show has taught me anything over the last 7 years it’s that, in BANANAS times when everything feels uncertain and weird and sometimes terrifying, listening to stories together makes everything feel better.

The plan is to ask you to assemble at 7:25ish. If you can’t make it for the start of the show, you’ll be let onto the call as soon as the current storyteller has finished.

As much as possible, it would be amazing if you can stay for the whole thing — and our all-star line-up means you’ll be glad you did.

Depending on how many people RSVP, I’ll either post the Zoom link on here or — if we get snowed by requests to come along, I’ll only send the link to the people on the mailing list. You can join that, for free, here:
https://app.convertkit.com/landing_pages/465999

And I *PROMISE* I will only ever email you about this show.

Friends, it’s a pretty wild world at the moment. I’m so glad we have the technology to be able to come together anyway, and let our brains be carried off to different places by these five INCREDIBLE storytellers.

SEE YOU ON Mon March 23rd! Spread the word!

xx (Yes Yes) Marsha

and a VERY special secret guest.

Hosted by Marsha from YesYesMarsha.com

The show is a really lovely night, friendly and warm. There is a 20-minute interval, but quite a few people come on their own with a book or something, so if you fancy doing that, you won’t be the only one.

If you want to come early and grab some food, The Lakeview diner (est 1932) is a few steps away, with the best shakes (I love banana-vanilla) and sweet potato fries in Toronto.
