Jackie Hoffman Joins Bucks County Playhouse WORD OF MOUTH Virtual Storytelling Show

Bucks County Playhouse's Word of Mouth livestream debuts, Sunday, February 28 at 7 pm.

Broadway's Jackie Hoffman will be a featured storyteller in Bucks County Playhouse's "Word of Mouth" live stream, that debuts, Sunday, February 28 at 7 pm.

This month's edition of "Word of Mouth" will also feature storytellers Eric Woodall and Eric Rutherford, and is hosted by NPR's Ophira Eisenberg and renowned storyteller, Michaela Murphy, Bucks County Playhouse's Director of Education.

"What is storytelling? This is not a monologue or someone reading from a page. This is storytelling in its truest sense, connecting to another person and telling them a well-crafted story about something important that happened and potentially how it changed the direction of your life," said Ophira Eisenberg. "It's sitting down with a curious friend. In this instance, the audience becomes the room full of curious friends. There's a real authenticity about the dialogue and the interaction between storyteller and audience."

Tickets to the performance of "Word of Mouth: Fast Forward" are $15 and are available at StellarTickets.com. For complete details, please visit BucksCountyPlayhouse.org or call 215-862-2121.
