Story District's annual tribute to the pleasures and perils of romance and relationships. A good night for couples, singles, gay, straight, polyamorous, monogamous, divorced, married, circumcised, or vajazzled.
Whether you’re with your sweetie or single, Story District’s Sucker for Love storytelling show is a unique and unforgettable way to spend Valentine’s Day -- listening to heartfelt and hilarious true stories about loves found, lost, and imagined. As always, Story District promises storytelling at its best with a cast of talented tellers including: Adrian Villalobos, Amy Hoang Wrona, Knecole Blake, Matt Johnson, Ritija Gupta, Sakina Zaidi, Scott Hollingsworth, and Tony Dahlman. Directed by Stephanie Garibaldi and Mike Baireuther, with special guest co-hosts Laura Feiveson and Nupur Mehta.
NOTE: Avoid the Ticketfly fees by purchasing tickets in person at the Lincoln Theater or 9:30 Club box offices. Ticket fees are $1 per ticket when you buy in person. Box offices are open at regular hours or when they are open for another show. See hours for both venues.
Adrian Villalobos is inspired by his grandparents -- two of the greatest storytellers he's ever known. The quickest way to his heart is buying him a candy necklace or a slice of mushroom topped pizza. His twin brother would recommend purchasing both.
Amy Hoang WronaStoryteller
Amy Hoang Wrona is a sucker for puppies, rainbows, and her family. She uses storytelling in developing business for international development companies, but her true passion is searching for the perfect bowl of chips and salsa, never to be found outside her home state of Texas.
Knecole Blake works traveling around the world helping people recover from natural disasters. She’s made for that job, thanks to all her experience dealing with personal disasters. Knecole loves telling stories because it’s more fun and cheaper than therapy. Instagram: the.k.issilent
Matt Johnson loves being outside in bad weather and spends every snowstorm wandering the streets of DC. His first date ended in an ER visit, and as traumatic as it was at the time, he’s thrilled now that his romantic misadventures can bring laughs to others.
Ritija Gupta hates talking about herself, yet she didn’t let that stop her from performing her first solo show through Cultural DC recently. You may recognize her from Perfect Liar's Club, Upworthy, or other Story District shows. Or maybe you just know her from somewhere; she gets that a lot.
Sakina Zaidi is a board games and brownies kind of girl. No, not the kind of brownies you're thinking. She's a big believer in true love, tall tales, and tikka masala. On any given night, she can be found indulging in at least two out of those three.
Scott Hollingsworth is an Indiana-born attorney who blames his beloved London soccer team Arsenal FC for the emotional roller coaster he endures every season. Thankfully, his 14-year old daughter keeps him grounded on the days they lose. Come on you Gunners!!!
Tony Dahlman was once called a romantic because he likes sunsets better than sunrises. He is a Minnesotan by birth, a government statistician by day, and a lover by nature of public speaking, running, county fairs, and of course, his amazing wife.
Laura loves math puzzles, old movies, and bad puns. She spends most of her time crunching numbers for the government and chasing after her two little daughters. Her greatest parenting success so far has been teaching her toddler to say "pardon my faux pas" whenever she farts.
Nupe is a doctor by day and a novice improviser/stand-up by night. While he made his debut storytelling performance at last year's Sucker for Love, he's no stranger to the spotlight. If you look very closely, you can barely see him as a third-row Bollywood back-up dancer in the 2001 Heather Graham smash hit, The Guru.
Stephanie Garibaldi (Co-Director) has always been a sucker for love and storytelling. After 9 years of directing SFL, she’s still crushing on the show itself plus all of its talented cast members. She’s happily married now for the third, the longest, and hopefully the last time.
Mike Baireuther has been a sucker for love since he got in trouble for writing romantic letters to his girlfriend during his 3rd grade English class. He's been a fan and storyteller with Story District for about five years. Special thanks to his wife Molly for editing all his stories, and for putting up with him in general.
