The Stoop - Back from Paris - Let's Dip

  • Rosa's Lounge 3420 West Armitage Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Join us for an evening of stories at Rosa's Lounge.

We been around for six-years. We ain't going anywhere.

A lot of our guest are not performers or writers but we are all characters in the story of our lives. This month however, I have invited some of my favorite writers and performers to welcome me back from a month long trip to Paris. I asked and they said yes.

That's why I love this show so much. We just BE. Nothing more, nothing less. Come through!

RC Riley
and
Will Pettway

will be joined by me and my wonderful cohost/producer Jenny DeLessio-Parson.

The rest of the lineup just comes together organically because that is how the Stoop works. You show up, be present, and then listen to some music and go home.

Every other show is a show while the Stoop is more of an experience. Often imitated never duplicated. Whether it's 1 or 100 in the audience, we gon' kick it. We ain't got time to be stressed about filling seats and selling tickets. That's what show runners do. We only care that we have a space in the community to hear back from the community about the things that are going on with them.

We didn't invite people over, they just showed up and we gave them space.

Also, this is Lily's WELCOME event and fundraiser for some great Stoopnanigans we have planned for 2020! COME THROUGH!!!!
