WordPlay

July 18th
Live Storytelling set to a DJ Soundtrack
 
WordPlay is an exciting event that blends hilarious true stories with a live music mash-up. Actors, comedy writers, and everyday people read their own funny, and often poignant, true stories with a live DJ score. Using anything from Bach to Britney Spears, the DJ works with each performer to develop the perfect soundtrack, creating a rich storytelling experience unlike anything out there today. The result will be something distinct, collaborative, lively, and most importantly...totally funny.
 
Creator and producer Alan Olifson, host of the Pittsburgh’s monthly Moth StorySLAM series, transplanted WordPlay to the Steel City from Los Angeles where it ran successfully for five years. Now Pittsburghers can share their stories n’at in this unique and dynamic platform.
 
Featuring stories from:
James Kincaid
Lisa Kirchner
Jason McCune
Alan Olifson
Todd Shaffer
 
DJ for the evening: Keebs
 
The show begins at 8pm and tickets are just $20.
