Now four years old, Telluride’s The Downlow, an evening of storytelling, has grown into one of Telluride Theatre’s most popular events.

Each Downlow has a different theme, December 28th’s being “Holidays” and storytellers tell their tales accordingly. At this one-of-a-kind Telluride event, people you see every day get up and bare their souls, recounting true events, some outrageously funny, some, touching, but all incredible stories for the entire community to embrace.

“The Downlow has become a huge part of Telluride. It is a unique way for the community to come together. Storytelling is so powerful and the Downlow taps into the great energy of our town, because it is the people who live here who make this place special”  stated Sasha Sullivan, Telluride Theatre’s Artistic Director. “It’s a part of THE OFF, a program that provides FREE smaller events with BIG impact.”

“We’re so excited to share our 5th annual holiday edition of this event with the community. We have an incredible lineup of dynamic locals who have worked on some really special personal stories for the stage. We hope everyone will leave feeling inspired to share memories and stories of their own. What a great way to bring in 2019!  The evening of December 28 will also mark the launch of our first episode of the DownLow podcast – available on iTunes,” says Laura.
