Brighten Up

Before the lights go out on Lit Lounge (just for a spell, we swear), the SMoCA Lounge storytelling series puts the spotlight on a handful of funny, fantastical, and heartfelt yarns spun on Friday, October 25.

The recurring event will go on hiatus after the October installment, which will include tales from Beth Lapides, whom you might recognize as Marina Abramovic from Sex and The City, best-selling author Raleigh R. Pinskey, New Times contributor Julie Peterson, and more.

Tickets to the final Lit Lounge of 2013 are $7.50. While passes for seating in the Lounge itself are sold out, the show will take place simultaneously at the next-door Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. Performers will zip from one stage to the other so that each audience hears every story.

Reserve your spot by calling 480-499-8587 or purchasing tickets at www.scottsdaleperformingarts.org. Lit Lounge returns January 24, 2014.
