This week marks the second annual “Most of” edition of Lit Lounge, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art’s outside-the-box monthly speaker series. “Most of” is more of a “best of,” featuring prominent national and local performers like Annabelle Gurwitch, Beth Lapides, and local playwright Kim Porter who share secrets and harsh personal truths with routinely sold-out audiences.
Hosted and organized by author, TEDx speaker, comedic performer, cancer survivor, and “Producer of Shenanigans” Tania Katan (wearer of many hats), this take on storytelling fuses life lessons and hilarity from people who know how to speak to audiences and, arguably more importantly, know how to speak about themselves. Thursday’s line-up includes seven female performers, and Katan promises a mystery speaker also will perform. The event also features live music between stories by local band Where Are All the Buffalo? and a cash bar.
Get Lit Lounge at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at the Virginia G. Piper Theater at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second Street. Tickets are $15. Call 480-499-8587 or visit www.scottsdaleperformingarts.org for tickets.
