Storytelling superstars Adam Wade and Carla Katz will once again bring top-tier talent to Mile Square Theatre for a second installment of the On The Waterfront Storytelling Series on Saturday, October 27.
The initial run of this show played to a packed house back in May.
“We were thrilled and heartened that our own Hoboken community embraced the show and that it SOLD OUT,” says Katz. “It was a truly magical night. The audience was very enthusiastic and welcoming. We could all feel the love!”
The host for the October 27th event is comedian CJ Hunt (Daily Show with Trevor Noah). Performers that evening include Ed Gavagan (The Moth Radio Hour, Ted Talks), Angela Dohrmann (Seinfeld, Second City, Moth Champion), Richard Cardillo (Tank, Moth Champion), David Martin (Upright Citizens Brigade)—and of course Carla Katz (People’s Improv Theatre, Comedy Cellar) and Adam Wade.
Storytelling is gaining popularity nationwide, with a huge following here on the west bank of the Hudson.
“Well one reason is that we have Adam Wade,” says Katz. “Hoboken loves him, and I am thrilled every time I get to share the stage with him. An ever-growing number of people have just fallen in love with the beautiful truth of storytelling. People can relate to the humor or the pathos and see themselves in the stories of others. Surely, the popularity of The Moth Radio Hour and other storytelling podcasts like Snap Judgment fuels some interest too.”
Like Mile Square Theatre, Katz sees the opportunity to bring entertainment like this across the river. “I also think that the Hoboken community is craving more more performance, more art, and more music. We hope to keep bringing the best storytellers and comics to our beloved city,” she says. “We absolutely plan to keep this series going, probably on a quarterly basis. We love the Mile Square Theatre and the folks that run it. It’s a beautiful space and it is a perfectly intimate place for storytelling.”
