Testify’s Third Anniversary!

Thanks to everyone who came out last night to listen to the stories and celebrate Testify’s 3rd anniversary!

It was a fantastic show – our storytellers told compelling stories that were vastly different from one another, but brought the same honesty and vulnerability. We had a wonderful audience, and it was fun to see the show in a new space – it has been quite some time since that has happened!

Last night was not only our third anniversary, but also our 38th show. Over the last three years, Testify has brought 185 stories to the stage through 116 storytellers, with 41 of those storytellers performing in multiple shows.

So thank you, Testify community, for helping make the past three years happen. We could not have this show without your support, without you showing up to both listen to stories and tell them.

We hope you had some cake – you deserve it!
