After our main-stage “Members Only” storytellers, five audience members took the stage with their own five-minute tales of fitting in, falling out and finding their tribe.
The winner, Ayme Art-Bergamot, brought the house down with a story of leaving a quarter-century marriage and embracing herself. She won a $50 gift voucher to The Broadway Center for the Performing Arts.
All of the Slam members faced the terrifying initiation of stepping in front of roomful of strangers and sharing their lives, right off the top of their heads. We welcome them to the “Member Only” Story Club.
