Take Two is a unique show where storytellers share one true story with two endings: one the way it actually happened, the other where they rewind time to make it all turn out differently. What happens when you take the other fork in the road, right the wrongs or wrong the rights, say what you could have said, do what you could have done, flip to a different page in the choose your own adventure? When the only thing between a storyteller and the perfect ending is the real ending, they bring it to Take Two.

Harvey Katz first became a woman at a torquise and peach colored Bat-Mitzvah in Miami in the early 90's before coming into his manhood in a small city in Georgia. He spent 13 years on the road as a spokenword poet and is currently pursuing a career in nursing. His lack of boundaries and general impulsiveness means he's collected a story or two over the years. Catch him hosting Take Two Storytelling or trying to convince people to buy his hats on Etsy. This is life post poetry.
