“At its best, Story District is a spellbinding night of spoken word: Average people onstage telling true-life stories of love, high school foibles, childhood vacations or restaurant jobs, delivered without notes and without a net. Some provoke knowing laughter; others reduce the room to silence. Your average Story District show is very good, but theTop Shelf performance should be a knockout: A panel of judges have selected their favorite stories from a year’s worth of shows and invited their authors back for a greatest-hits show. Tales of haunting, booze and courtship are all on the docket: Truly something for everyone.” — The Washington Post
