About the show
(mostly) TRUE THINGS is a game wrapped in a storytelling show with a side of music. Four storytellers share true stories, but 3 of them weave little white lies into the telling. The audience gets to ask questions of the storytellers - who are not obligated to tell the truth and can improvise their answers - then vote for the person they think told it straight. There are prizes involved, if you can believe a thing like that. With original songs written for the show. With original songs- the audience sings along - written for the show to set up each stage of the game and an improvised song summing up each story to introduce the audience interaction portion of the show.
