Presented by KCRW and The Santa Barbara Independent, the Moth’s celebration of inspiring, harrowing, and courageous live stories is returning to Santa Barbara. What began as a modest storytelling collective in its founder’s living room has grown into an epic, nationwide phenomenon with a cult-like following. Five hand-picked Moth Mainstage all-stars will tie together the brilliant and the absurd for a spellbinding evening at the historic Lobero Theatre on Thursday, April 7th. Since each story is true and every voice authentic, the show dances between documentary and theater, creating a unique, intimate, and often enlightening experience for the audience.
