POSTSECRET LIVE Coming to Bass Hall, 9/8
Performing Arts Fort Worth welcomes The New York Times best-selling author Frank Warren and his interactive show, PostSecret Live, to Bass Performance Hall on Tuesday, September 8, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets start at $33-$66 and will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. Friday, August 7!
Named the fourth most influential person on the Internet by Forbes magazine, PostSecret creator Frank Warren introduced the world to a collection of highly-personal and artfully-decorated postcards mailed anonymously from people around the world. What started as a community mail-art project quickly exploded in popularity. Since PostSecret's inception in 2004, Warren has received over 1,000,000 anonymous secrets on homemade postcards. A new batch of postcards is posted every Sunday on his website, www.postsecret.com.
The website is the most visited advertisement-free blog in the world and has won three Webby Awards for "Best Blog on the Internet." With over 2,500,000 views, his TED talk is one of the most watched in the popular series.
In Warren's interactive multimedia event, PostSecret Live, he engages audiences with inspiring and funny stories behind the secrets, discusses the blog and unveils never-before-seen postcards. Warren also turns the microphone over to members of the audience, allowing them to share their own secrets.
"The audience is so receptive, and the speakers are so earnest, that long lines form very quickly," Warren told The Washington Post. "There's something about a true live event where you have people standing at a microphone sharing things for the first time. It has a whole unique energy to it."
All six PostSecret books published have been featured on The New York Times bestselling list, with PostSecret Confessions on Life Death and God reaching number one. PostSecret postcards have been exhibited at the renowned Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Visionary Art Museum in Maryland, and there is an album and play based on the project.
Warren's project has raised over $1,000,000 for suicide prevention and earned him the Mental Health Advocacy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011 and an invitation to the White House to share his thoughts on mental wellness in 2013.
