The last Tuesday of almost every month!

Levonah is a cross-cultural celebration that combines music from around the world with the age-old tradition of storytelling. The ensemble rose out of the highly acclaimed Bay Area musical "Love Sick", and is currently nominated for "Best Ensemble" at the Theatre Bay Area Awards in October 2017. Master musicians from Syria, Israel, and the United States come together to weave a rich tapestry of sounds that is at once a taste of the orient, and a new creation all on its own - the kind of energy that only comes when distant cultures overlap, and celebrate their differences.

Tom Pulsifer has been taking storytelling classes at Stagebridge since his retirement in 2015, and continues to develop his skills as a participant in the EPIC Storytelling Program at Stagebridge. Tom volunteers as a history docent for the Oakland Museum of California, and is particularly interested in applying the craft of storytelling to making history come alive.

Claire Isaacs Wahrhaftig is a retired arts administrator who, thanks to Stagebridge, at last gets to practice an art! She appeared in Tell it on Tuesday in April this year and has told at the Frank Bette Center for the Arts for three years, at the Piedmont Center for the Arts, and for Story Corps.
Ellen Kaufman is grateful for the stories that she has to tell. Even the painful ones mellow out over time.

Bill Zarchy circumnavigated the globe many times during his 40 years as a cinematographer. Now he likes to write novels and tell tales about his work and travels across six continents.

Ben Tucker loves a good story, well told. He says it nourishes his mind and soul.
