This weekend I had the distinct pleasure of going to an amazing reading in Savannah, Ga. It was the final night of the Unchained Tour, and it was amazing.
I went in for the show having no idea what was going to happen, or really what I was in for. I knew it was a reading. I knew it was going to have a lot of amazing writers there, and I knew that I was thrilled to be going.
It turned out to be nothing like I imagined. I walked into the venue and found beautiful paper hearts floating from the roofs, lining the stage. The room was filled to capacity, sold totally out and every chair was filled, with a few people standing or sitting on the floor.
The evening began and I understood that we were here to hear stories, to have stories told to us by some of the most amazing storytellers of our time. This wasn’t a standard reading where someone opens up their book and reads the words on the page: this was a moment of storytelling at its barest form. These were all stories about love, about life, about moments and things from these amazing people’s lives.
I cannot recommend this highly enough. If you have the chance to go see one of their shows, absolutely please do. I am hoping to get more involved with the Unchained project in the very near future.
