Episode 3 – Three Strikes (part 2)

In the second half of our ‘3 Strikes’ show, Daniel Mahler and Jenn Wehrung  swap stories about a first love and many, many lives not content to stay in the past. Did you know that part of the fun at our lives shows is to ask the author a personal question before their partner performs their story? You will once you listen!

Now let’s get to know the four fabulous NYTI alums who switched-up their true-life tales with us previously and are now busy taking on this new genre.

Jim won on the
television quiz show Jeopardy!, which is a story that he will tell
to anyone who listens until the day he dies. Lastly, he’d like to thank
Madeline, Ava, and Finn (his three lovely children) and Victoria (his very
patient wife) for putting up with his odd schedules and needing to be alone in
a quiet room for a while.

Katie Johnston has a BA in Theatre Arts from
Jacksonville University, and has had the pleasure of working for several years
in regional theatre.  After a LONG
hiatus, Katie made her way back to the stage for the first time in February
with No, YOU Tell It!’s “Revelation” showcase.
She was so thrilled to be invited back for the very first NYTI “Fiction
Edition.”  Katie is currently studying
Integrative Nutrition and is so grateful for the NYTI family for welcoming her
in and giving her an opportunity to continue to create and perform.

NYTI: Fiction Edition Coming Soon!

We’ve assembled 4 fabulous NYTI alums who switched-up their true-life tales with us previously and are now busy taking on this new

Jim Cairl, co-writer with our own Kelly Jean on the web series Intersection

Live Show: Revival

Apr 15 2015 @ 7:00PM

Our next switched-up storytelling show, REVIVAL, is just one week away!

We reached out to emerging artist, Rose Eddins, and asked her to draw an original image inspired by our show’s theme.

As you can see, the result is cherubic and delightful. NYTI’s own Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons asked her niece, Rose, what inspired her to create her masterpiece, here’s what she had to say:

I don’t know. I just thought of it.

Join us on April 15th at 7pm to celebrate and support Jimmy’s No. 43 reopening! Click here for details and to RSVP.
