If you missed the show, you can now watch every speaker on the LTYM: KC Youtube playlist, and if you were there for the incredible experience, relive the laughter and tears and everything in between.

We did it, Kansas City!   We raised over $300 for Literacy Kansas City, and we put on a show that Kathleen and I, and the cast, are incredibly proud of.  There was laughter and tears and everything in between, and every one of our incredible cast performed their readings like the rock stars that they are.  We’ve made memories that we will cherish forever and like we’ve said to each other in the last few weeks, the thirteen of us are stuck together now, whether we like it or not. Of course, we love it. Thank you to the twelve of you that shared your stories. Thank you for walking across that stage, stepping up to the microphone, and pouring your hearts out. Thank you to the national team that helped Kathleen and I along the way, and never let our newbie selves feel overwhelmed (for too long, at least). And thank […]
