Featuring the same humor, heart and fantastic head of hair that made her a two-time Moth StorySlam Champion, Smita Russell’s latest show untangles crazy coincidences and explores the limits of language and logic in the face of grief. For anyone who’s ever experienced loss and come back for more.

100% of proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the March of Dimes.

Smita Russell is a performer, writer and photographer. She began storytelling in 2023 and found unexpected joy and success in sharing on the stage. Before settling down in New York, Smita lived on six continents and spent long stretches sailing the high seas, despite crippling motion sickness. Professionally, she advises media moguls, CEOs, Oscar winners and G.O.A.T.s on all matters of education. This is her first solo show.
