There are over twelve million stories in the City of Angels & for nearly quarter of a century Terrie Silverman has nurtured many of them into life. Stories are the way we connect, they are the way we understand ourselves, each other and the world.

Los Angeles Story Advocate Terrie Silverman’s Gorgeous Stories series is produced from work developed in her Creative Rites classes and is one of the longest running storytelling shows in LA. In creating a safe place for all forms of creative expression; writers, actors, musicians and storytellers have written acclaimed memoirs, been featured in national publications, been presented on public radio shows including The Moth and This American Life, as well as storytelling shows and theatre festivals across the country.

Transporting, Igniting, Inspiring

For over twenty four years Silverman’s clients have developed award-winning Solo-Shows that have toured nationally and internationally, many of which she has also directed. Audiences have witnessed a mesmerizing collection of Gorgeous Stories transporting them to different worlds, igniting their imaginations and often inspiring them to develop and tell their own brave, moving & painfully comic moments into performance pieces in Los Angeles and beyond.
