A performance is a snapshot that develops in real time. Stepping into the light, an artist may reveal a memory, a feeling, a slice of life. What do we see when the picture comes into focus? It has everything to do with our perspective.

Join us for It’s Personal, a season of storytelling and self-expression. Memoir, travelogue, conversation, argument—each performance takes its own form, each story its own vantage point. Along the way, hear new music alongside the familiar; revisit long-held beliefs with fresh eyes; feel new connections crackle to life. The one constant: we have to show up to experience it; every good story needs a listener or two.

Telling our own story is a potent act, capable of unlocking something new in artist and audience alike. That’s true on any stage, in any room—from grand concert halls to cabaret clubs to the makeshift theaters we build in our living rooms, furniture pushed against the wall. This season, Longy invites you to witness that power firsthand, and maybe unearth something new in yourself along the way.
