Take Two Storytelling: July 17th

  • C'mon Everybody 325 Franklin Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

One true story, two endings: one the way it actually happened, and 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.
Co-hosted by Elana Lancaster and Harvey Katz
