“Gemstones of narrative. Something new, funny, astonishing.”
-Los Angeles Daily News
“Tales tall, tragic, and tantalizing.”
“Stories from all walks and talks of life. Tales of yore and ones that
make you scream for more-those that will delight with insight while moving an
audience from laughter to tears.”
-Studio City Sun
Story Salon is Los Angeles’s longest running storytelling venue. What
began as an alternative to stand-up clubs and self-conscious performance spaces
has been challenging performers and audiences for more than a decade.
Created in a North Hollywood coffee house Story Salon now reaches the globe
through Podcasting, publishing, and recordings.
The rules of the Story Salon haven’t changed since it started: Five to
seven minutes of original material performed by the author. The result is a
unique blend of observation, memoir and comment that makes the Salon one of
the most eclectic entertainment experiences available. More than a dozen
solo theater works have been developed at Story Salon, as well as a CD of
stories, and several books.
“Live storytelling is a unique art form,” says Story Salon founder,
writer/actor/comedian Beverly Mickins. “Words spoken aloud paint pictures
capable of evoking laughter and tears, the whole range of emotion. People have
been telling each other stories since the first campfires, talking about the
whole mix of things, important and trivial, that go into making life.
Storytelling is one of the ways we figure out how to be human.”
It’s an omnibus of memories, rants, affirmations, and shaggy-dog stories
that once opened is impossible to shut.
The writer/performers of Story Salon include actors, comedians, musicians,
photographers, war correspondents, students, life coaches, former clowns,
recovering attorneys, one admitted juggler, an international fashion model,
several husbands and wives, and one mother and daughter.
