The Moth Scores Big In Pittsburgh With Jimmy Krenn


August 27, 2010

Last night I was lucky enough to be one of 500+ people at the New Hazlett Theater over on the North Side. They were hosting another edition of The Moth entitled: Nerves of Steel: Stories of Moxie and Might. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, as I had never been to a 'storytelling' show before. There were 5 'storytellers', one more intriguing than the other with their bios to prove it. Amongst them was our own Jimmy Krenn, who was asked to be a part of the production earlier this summer. A group of us from the office went to support Jimmy, and the arts, at this unique production.

Our evening's host was Jessi Klein who is a writer performer. She has appeared on Best Week Ever, The Today Show, Comedy Central, and CNN. She's written for the movies and some shows, including Saturday Night Live. She kept the night rolling in between each storyteller. There was also a xylophone player that kept time, and when the storytellers had one minute left, a bell would ring. If they went over their time, the music would cut them off - just like a drawn out acceptance speech at the Oscars.


The storytellers of the evening were George Dawes Green, the founder of The Moth, Amy Cohen, writer/producer, Greg Walloch, solo performer, Allison Amend, visiting professor at the University of Pittsburgh, and our very own Jimmy Krenn, radio personality and stand-up comedian.


Everyone had an amazing 10-minute story to tell, including a families struggle with selling a plantation, the decision to get a preventative surgery to avoid hereditary cancer, dealing with a disability, facing the fact that your family was being targeted by a hate crime, and the courage of a 9-year old as an altar boy during his first Mass in front of his whole family, improvising his way through prayers. Each story had you captivated from the beginning, and all of them were amazing. 


We are very excited that Pittsburgh got to host this one-night-only evening, and we can't wait for it to come back!
