THE MOTH MAINSTAGE

Cobb Great Hall

The Moth is a nationally acclaimed organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.

Each Moth Mainstage features simple, old-fashioned storytelling, by five wildly divergent raconteurs who develop and shape their stories with The Moth's directors. After past sold out performances in Detroit, Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor, The Moth Mainstage comes to East Lansing with a line-up of writers, performers, and other unique national and local storytellers. You never know how the stories might unfold. Some are dramatic, funny, or suspenseful – and perhaps all these things and more.

Hosted this year by Tara Clancy, Tara’s writing has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Paris Review Daily and The Rumpus. She is a Moth GrandSLAM winner and her stories have been featured on The Moth Radio Hour, as well as NPR's Snap Judgment and Risk!. Her memoir, The Clancys of Queens, will be published by Crown this year.

$60 VIP tickets include premium seating, private pre and post-performance reception in the Jackson Lounge including a meet and greet with The Moth storytellers after the performance. 

May not be suitable for those under 18.
