Donations Are Tax-Deductible

IN A NUTSHELL: We are also the only nonprofit monthly NYC performance series presenting both storytellers & musicians.  Here’s another thing that sets us apart: We support artists, paying our performers, unlike many venues, so we can help them earn a living doing what they love. And we support the arts by providing an intimate space for audiences and performers to really connect and explore what it means to be human, 2nd Fridays of the month — through music & storytelling.
