THE MOTH MAINSTAGE

Twist of Fate

Cobb Great Hall

“New York’s hottest and hippest literary ticket” – The Wall Street Journal

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 for the first time 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.

Our Host 

Ophira Eisenberg is a comedian, writer, and host of NPR’s weekly comedy trivia show, Ask Me Another. Selected as one of New York Magazine's "Top 10 Comics that Funny People Find Funny," and featured in the New York Times as a skilled comedian and storyteller with a “bleakly stylish” sense of humor, Ophira has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central, The Today Show and more. Her debut memoir, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy, was recently optioned for a feature film with Zucker Productions. She is a regular host and teller with The Moth. 

$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.
