Storytime Karaoke Medley

Inspired by a dear friend’s amateur cabaret act, “Storytime Karaoke Medley” relays personal narrative with sing-along interruptions, appropriating popular music to add humor and context. “Olga,” the first in the series, told the story of 3 generations of Olgas—my grandmother, mother, and me—and was performed at Spoke in Chicago for Ryan Richey’s “Nighty Nite” event, with dancing/singing assistance from Chris Lin.
