$5 admission
We each have experience with the Labors of Love. So you will relate as some of New York City’s finest storytellers tell stories of how Love with a capital L has been Work with a capital W. They will explore the relationship we have with relationships. They will ask what we are willing to do and why we are willing to do it for love. Are we seeking wholeness through another? Are we simply following a narrative we’ve been told before? Do we have desires that are too nuanced to put into words? The Labor of Love storytellers will ask all these questions through a series of true personal stories. The Storytellers are Caitlin Brodnick, Kate Greathead, Nisse Greenberg, Eli Reiter and Aaron Wolfe.

Kate Greathead is a storyteller and writer who is confused about her relationship to talking about herself. She is a four time Moth Slam Champion whose work has been featured on the Moth radiohour and the New York Times.

Aaron Wolfe is a storyteller and filmmaker who likes international sports and marxism. His short film Record/Play has won all kinds of awards and was an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival as well as a Vimeo Staff Pick. He’s also a Moth GrandSlam Champion and he runs a show called First Time Long Time about stories in sports.

Eli Reiter is a writer, journalist, storyteller, and aspiring listener. He is a multiple Moth Slam Champion who produces the show Long Story Long. He tweets a lot @411eli and his writing can be found at
Caitlin Brodnick is a comedian and storyteller who is just trying to finish this book. She is the creator of the docu-series Screw You Cancer and has had her storytelling featured on The Moth Podcast and her writing featured in Glamour. She is also the producer of Shut Up! – an all female storytelling show.
Nisse Greenberg, organizer of this evening, is attempting to be more vulnerable. He is the creator of Bad Feelings, Drawn Out Storytelling, and VHS Presents. The Future of Storytelling said his “commitment to the storytelling craft is infectious” which makes him sound like a virus on the right side of the law!
