The Silver Ball: The Moth's 25th Anniversary Gala Honoring David Byrne On 5.26.22 - Moth Ball2022 Web 1280X717Px

Please join us on May 26th in New York City for The Moth’s glitziest, most glamorous night of the year! This special evening will include a cocktail party on a gorgeous NYC roof deck, an elegant seated dinner with fabulous views of the New York skyline at sunset, and in Moth tradition, a riveting and rollicking storytelling show featuring four full-length Mainstage stories, plus a compilation video of a few of our all-time favorite SLAM stories!

At the Silver Ball, we will also be presenting the 2022 Moth Storyteller of the Year Award to the multi-talented artist, musician, writer and director DAVID BYRNE! Every year at our spring gala, we honor extraordinary individuals whom we admire for being passionate and bold in their work, and for that reason, there is no better recipient for this year’s award than David Byrne. Unique, beautiful, tenacious and creative storytelling has been the hallmark of his career — from his groundbreaking and brilliant work with Talking Heads to his Broadway tour-de-force American Utopia. There couldn’t be a more fitting storyteller to celebrate at our Silver Anniversary gala!
