SPECIAL EVENT | 'Come As You Are' 

After covering the 2017 KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival, "Come As You Are" was my top pick for the show I'd like to see again. During the hour-long spoken word production, four women shared their personal stories dealing with identity and acceptance — topics varied from the experience of being a single mother to being the child of immigrant parents — and I left feeling connected to both the performers and the other audience members in a way that I definitely did not expect.

Writers & Books (740 University Avenue) will host an encore performance of "Come As You Are" on Thursday, November 9, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8. At the end of the performance, audience members will have the opportunity to share their own stories, like they did for the Fringe show. Although I personally did not share a story, it looked like a cathartic experience. Check facebook.com/ComeAsUR2017 for more details and pre-sale ticket information (tickets are also available at the door).
