What lies beyond the bend in the river? What is inside that huge box topped with a bow that your partner left in the living room? What if the alligator pie you’re about to eat doesn’t taste just like chicken? Anticipation can be exciting – and it can be awful. Something is about to happen – but you don’t quite know what. Come join our six storytellers as they share true stories of “Anticipation.”
We are back at the beautiful, 180 seat Merrick Theater for this show. Our storytellers include a Long Island lobster fisherman who found himself unexpectedly in the drink, a bar mitzvah boy trying to avoid the minefield of his divorced parents on his big day, a man whose vow of celibacy after a bad breakup sorely tests his sanity, a mother who learns that her newborn needs major surgery to survive.
