It’s a Lost & Found Show Christmas!
Guess what, guys? It’s the holidays already. What better way to celebrate than with stories about BLING? Put on your flashiest outfits (or just bring back that Mr. T costume from Halloween) and warm up with a tasty beverage.

Every third Thursday of the month, Daniel Guzman brings together authors, bloggers, comedians, and performers to share fiction and nonfiction tales involving everyday objects and the secrets they reveal about us. From the sublime to the surprising, each show is as diverse and tempting as the contents of a lost and found box.
Natasha Gural is an award-winning journalist and writer of many things including a novel-in-progress tentatively titled Lubachka, a factual tale of survivor’s guilt based largely on her Russian mother’s early childhood as a prisoner in concentration and labor camps in Poland and Germany. It delves into cultural, ethnic and national identity as well as the lifelong emotional impact of surviving traumatic events. Her newswriting and analysis has appeared in major newspapers, magazines and websites throughout the world, and her cultural writing has been published by AP, the Los Angeles Times, Forbes, Cinespect and The Awl.

Marie Sabatino has been writing stories since she was a little girl. She’s told stories all over NYC for the last ten years… at venues like The National Arts Club, Galapagos Art Space, Happy Ending Lounge, KGB Bar and the Lit Crawl in Manhattan. You can find her stories in publications like Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood, Word Riot, Liars League, Freerange Nonfiction and a number of other places that only the most diligent stalker would be able to find. This is Marie’s second time reading for the Lost and Found show… and she often wonders when just once will ever ever ever be enough.
Jenice Matias considers herself a Nuyorican actress, storyteller, dancer, singer, and improviser. She studied with Adam Wade and John Flynn. In addition she wrote and performed in her One-Woman Show entitled “Pussinomics: A Comedy” an outrageous and unique collection of comedic character monologues that include original songs and dance presenting fictional scenarios of politicians exploiting women that premiered at the Magnet Theater 2013. Jenice’s next show is entitled “I don’t Suffer from Insanity, I Enjoy Every Minute of It,” a bio story about her relationship with her mother who was the biggest abortionist in New City during the 1960’s.
Heather Trobe is a social worker and storyteller from Brooklyn, NY. Previous to becoming a storyteller, Heather worked as a children’s birthday party entertainer/”Mad Scientist” where she honed her ability to melt plastic and breathe it in. Heather has appeared in “Whatever Happened to the Nerds?” at the Magnet Theater, “Two Truths and a Lie” at Cameo Gallery, and “For the Love of Candy” at Brooklyn Launchpad. She doesn’t have a pet at this time but she did grow up with three small dogs each with separate, beautiful stripper names.
