No, YOU Tell It!: College Try


Symphony Space pairs up with the long-running nonfiction series No, YOU Tell It! for a special evening of switched-up storytelling.

The night features entertainers and educators Kevin Allison (RISK!), Dion Flynn (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), Najah Imani Muhammad (Leaders by Choice), and more trading true tales inspired by the theme “College Try.”

For each No, YOU Tell It! show, four storytellers work together with the creative team to develop true tales on the page. Then they swap stories to embody their partner’s culture, identity, and life experience on stage. Audiences bear witness as story partners share in each other’s emotions directly instead of empathizing from a distance.

Hosted by story directors Ellie Dvorkin Dunn and Nicole Shawan Junior.

In the spirit of “College Try,” high school students interested in how storytelling can strengthen their college application essays are encouraged to attend the show. Students can also sign up for a pre-show workshop with producers and college essay writing instructors Kelly Jean Fitzsimmons and Tim Lindner to help jumpstart a college essay that will wow admissions officers. Space is limited! Contact [email protected] for more info and to register.
