Up until it closes, we’re highlighting one super cool item a day up for bidding at The Moth Ball Auction. Today, we’ve got a golden ticket!
A never-before-offered opportunity to go behind the scenes of a Moth Mainstage show.
Our flagship Mainstage series has thrilled standing-room only audiences since 1997, with stories by Malcolm Gladwell, Ethan Hawke, Margaret Cho, Annie Proulx, Salman Rushdie, and an astronaut, a pickpocket, a hot-dog eating champion and hundreds more.
The winner will attend a rehearsal before the show, something that has never been offered to the public before. Chat with the storytellers and The Moth’s directors before watching the show in comfort in four VIP seats.
You read right - this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see how we work with storytellers before a show. Go go go!
