April Theme: “CAUGHT IN THE ACT”

Posted on

We’re continuing to bring our unique brand of storytelling to new audiences, and bringing our audiences to new venues. This month we’re at The Center@862, a beautiful space in Scarsdale. It’s conveniently located near the train station for fans traveling in from the city and right by several restaurants for dinner before pie & tales. Come see what packed houses are raving about – great stories, great pies, great fun.

About the theme: Tell us about the time you almost got away with it–Ever been caught somewhere you shouldn’t have been? With someone you weren’t supposed to be with? Were you just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Trying something short of legal, or simply unwise? If the coast is clear for you to share your tale, this is your chance!

We’ll have prepared storytellers and plenty of open mic slots. If you have a grand confession you’d like to share, email co-producers Ivy Eisenberg or Zak Shusterman.

We all have a story within us. Come share, listen, and eat!

Thanks to  Curious_blue100  and all of you who came out to help February’s Pros(e) of Pie hit a new attendance record for a ‘regular’ show.  Thanks also to Westchester Magazine‘s Eat. Drink. Post. blog for featuring us this month. Check out the glowing piece urging readers to “Bake a pie, bring a pie, tell a story” here.

Hearty congratulations to the returning and first-time featured storytellers who entertained our beyond sold out crowd. Emotions were struck across the board, from laughs to gasps.

In another Pros(e) of Pie first, the bake-off winner was a Chocolate Avocado Pie submitted by a baking duo – our first tagteam Pie-Mistresses! That’s right – a pie made with avocado stole the show and you would’ve loved it too!

December PoP – A Curious Success

Posted on

20141213_172752Thanks to all who came out to our first show in Curious-on-Hudson‘s new space. The industrial cozy feel was perfect for our brand of shared community storytelling.  The crowd was taken on a raucous ride of “Close Call” tales across a range of emotions. We had some superstar open mic surprises too.

 As always, congratulations to featured storytellers David Nielsen, Susan Landon, Mariela Dabbah, Phil Morrow and Jim Keyes for sharing their close calls. Thanks also to the many contributions submitted from across the tri-state area, especially repeat Pie Mistress Susan!

Happy New Year!

New Season, New Venue! CLOSE CALL – Dec. 13 at Curious-on-Hudson

Posted on

With the chilly change in season, it’s also time for Prose of Pie to move on to bigger, better, warmer venues. Cast off the season’s chill a “Close Call”-themed show on Dec. 13 at  Curious_blue100 in nearby Dobbs Ferry, just minutes from our roots in Tarrytown.

Theme: CLOSE CALL
Venue:  Curious_logo1

BUY YOUR TICKETS EARLY!

About the theme: Hear tales about accidents that should have gone much worse, and neighbors narrowly making it through a difficult situation. And we want to hear your stories too: that time you should’ve failed but somehow managed to squeak by? a big mistake that went unnoticed? that thing you got into when you were almost caught….. They’re all fair game! As always, try to impress us by stretching the theme to fit your story!

This month, we’re back to our normal format – a line-up of prepared longer stories, lots of open mic slots, and opportunities for anonymous participation. Go ahead, give it a try and start this new PoP chapter with us! Your ears and tastebuds will thank you.

Westchester Magazine calls us a ‘phenomenon’!

Posted on

In an article on retro desserts, Westchester Magazine calls Pros(e) of Pie a ‘phenomenon':

And witness the phenomenon of the sellout Pros(e) of Pie series in Tarrytown, a monthly shindig where people bring home-baked pies, tell stories, and crown a Piemaster. (link)

We’re happy to be in such tasty local company.  Located just around the corner, our friends at The Twisted Oak got praised for their fancy “marshmallow-cream French toast based on the Fluffernutter”. Yum- we’ll take a pie entry from them any day!
