The grade-school staple gets elevated to adulthood at this new storytelling series, founded and hosted by Brooklyn writer Colleen Kane, a former editor at Nerve and Playgirl. Inspiration struck after she performed in a New Orleans edition of Blaise Allysen Kearsley’s How I Learned series. “[Show and tell] was a simple phrase from school days that sounded more promising the more I thought about it,” Kane says. Just like that elementary activity, participants in Kane’s show are required to have some kind of prop—whether it’s a book, a slide show or another person—to augment their presentations. Plus, the series gives Kane an excuse to dig up treasures from her past. “I really just wanted to validate tendencies of mine that I will euphemistically term curated hoarding,” she says. Check out the inaugural show for stories on everyone's favorite topic: sex ed.
