The Moth StorySLAMs are steadily spreading all over the map, gathering people and stories from all over the country. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Boston have multiple shows each month. The Moth is open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night's posted theme. The brave of heart, or those with stories they're aching to tell, prepare personal, true tales. When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth Hat. A half hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. Each person has just five minutes! The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in our GrandSLAM Championships. Come sign up to tell a story, or just enjoy the show!

Doors for the Moth open at 7PM. Premium ticket buyers will be admitted first, but must be present when doors open. Due to The Moth's policies, all seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis and the saving of seats is prohibited. We cannot guarantee that patrons who arrive after the house opens will be able to sit together, and as there are a limited number of seats some patrons will be placed in the Standing Room Only area.
