Andrea's Quote from Patriot Ledger 2/21/13

“I absolutely believe that everyone has stories to tell,” Lovett said. “If you have life experience, you have stories. You’re the vehicle for the story, and if you tell it well, you disappear and the audience’s imagination takes over.”

Through massmouth.com, professional storyteller Andrea Lovett, of Abington, is encouraging folks to tell tales.

Through local story slams, you and massmouth cofounder Norah Dooley have invited the public to tell stories alongside experienced pros. Why? We were looking for a way to reinvigorate storytelling and find new audiences. Story slams seem to appeal to a younger generation. They get it. What they bring is a whole new energy. Everybody can tell a story. This is a chance to get up there and try it out. They’re not rehearsed, they are not really polished, but they are real, and so appealing.
How do story slams compare with poetry slams? At poetry slams there will be cheers and jeers. We don’t have that. We feel the story is part of the person – usually they’re personal stories. We’re a little bit kinder and gentler.
The story slams lead up to The Big MouthOff at the Boston Public Library in Copley Square April 20 at 6pm. What will happen there? We’ll have the first- and second-place winners from the last six months of story slams, and the people’s choice winners. So you’re going to hear the best-of-the-best stories in Boston and in Massachusetts. And audience members picked at random will have a chance to tell a two-minute story in a mini-slam format, so they can be part of it. They won’t be judged, though.
What makes storytelling different from other entertainment? Even if the electricity goes out, we still have our words. Even in the recession, especially now, this is great theater with little cost, and you can be transported to Pamplona with the running of the bulls or the back stoop of an apartment in Queens. If the story is good, you can go anywhere.

..Andrea Performs Stories for Adults at Story Cafe New Bedford!!


Andrea performing at Story Cafe
Fabulous evening ,kudos to Karen Chace founder of the feast!

"Tales From The Table" part of her series of stories for adults. Growin up is hard to do, especially if your mom sometimes seems to be straight out of I Love Lucy. Strange things continually happened in Andrea's home. Thanksgiving Turkeys rolled down the hill, got attacked by pets, covered in ash --wound up ,painted with food coloring and served to guests, while her Dad beamed, Best darn turkey you ever made! Do anything different? Andrea admits she's inherited some of those rare and bizarre qualities and is proud to share them on stage.
