The Stoop Storytelling Series is a Baltimore-based live show and podcast that features “ordinary” people telling the extraordinary, true tales of their lives.

Stoop stories are not memorized, performed, or read. They’re shared.

Stoop shows are intimate and surprising, wonderful and weird, hilarious and heartbreaking.

Since its founding in 2006, The Stoop has featured the stories of more than 1,000 people onstage. Listen to these stories by clicking Past Shows — or via The Stoop Podcast.

In addition to its mainstage shows at The Senator Theatre, The Stoop presents Special Events, Workshops, and Second Stoop open mic evenings.
