Since its launch in 1997, THE MOTH has presented thousands of stories told live and without notes. Moth shows are renowned for the great range of human experience they showcase. Through ongoing programs in more than 25 cities, The Moth has presented over 20,000 stories to standing-room-only crowds worldwide and it currently produces more than 500 live shows each year. The Moth Mainstage is our flagship program, feauturing true, personal stories by luminaries in the arts and sciences, as well as an astronaut, an undertaker, a voodoo priestess and a retired NYPD detective, among many others. Each show features five carefully selected storytellers who develop and shape their stories with The Moth’s directors. The Moth Mainstage is a staple of the literary and art scenes in New York City, Los Angeles, and Boston, and a continuing presence across the U.S. and beyond.
