Twist Of Fate: The Moth Mainstage in Santa Barbara

Last night, my hubby and I saw a performance at UCSB's Campbell titled Twist Of Fate: The Moth in Santa Barbara, a Mainstage performance/event. According to The Moth Mainstage website, The Moth Mainstage is defined as follows:
The Moth Mainstage is our flagship program and features stories by luminaries in the arts and sciences, newsmakers and news breakers, and everyday heroes (and even a few reformed villains!). Each show features five storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. After the show, audience members and storytellers continue swapping stories over dinner and drinks. Beyond a mere theatrical experience, The Moth is an ever-growing community where entertainment, enlightenment and festivity merge.

The Moth Mainstage is a staple of the literary and art scenes in New York City and Los Angeles, but also tours throughout the United States and abroad. On the road, favorite storytellers from past Moth shows share the stage with local voices.

Tour partners have included public radio stations, non-profit organizations and international arts festivals.  (We’ve even joined forces with the U.S. State Department to produce a Mainstage in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.)

In essence, The Moth = True stories told live! This is a fun event to attend. We enjoyed the true stories told before a sold out audience and would love to see another Moth Mainstage event again in the future. One of the participants in tonight's The Moth Mainstage was actress, Molly Ringwald!


  1. Interesting... did you get to swap stories with any of the story tellers from the stage?

    1. Unfortunately, no! We didn't stick around to find out actually because my hubby and I were leaving home early the next morning to celebrate our anniversary in Monterey, California!!
