The Stoop on food
Do you know about the Stoop, the unusual storytelling series held at Centerstage?
Seven people have seven minutes each to tell their stories around a certain theme.
Next Monday, Nov. 2, the theme is "Kitchen Confidential: Stories about cooking, eating, and assorted food issues." The stories will be about everything from "Big Night"-style extravagances to waiting tables. ...
For this Stoop, the storytellers are Erica Chung, school psychologist; Gregory Hartzler-Miller, "lifestyle experimenter"; John Shields, owner/chef of Gertrude's at the BMA; Mary Rose Madden, public radio producer; Tony Geraci, director of food and nutrition for Baltimore City Public Schools; De'Von Brown, student, musician, and one of the "Boys of Baraka"; and Chrissy Ferrera, artist and "Starbucks diarist."
Tickets are $20 for general admission seating, and you can buy them on the Stoop Web site or by calling 410-332-0033.
The event starts at 7 p.m. with cocktails and music from Boister. The show itself starts at 8 p.m.
I've never been to a Stoop performance, although I've heard good things about them. Are they great? Very uneven? Worth the 20 bucks?
