Cast and Crew
Howard Lieberman
Co-Producer, Performer
Howard Lieberman has done just about everything on stage except sing, which he would love to do if only he could carry a tune. Howard grew up on the North Side of Chicago with a professional tap dancer for a father and a math teacher for a mother, which may explain his wild mood swings. Howard left the wholesome Midwest to find fame and fortune in New York City. 20 years and one child later Howard moved to staunchly Republican Stillwater Minnesota in 1990 with a New York accent and a jaded sense of humor. Although he currently makes his living as a headhunter for attorneys, Howard’s unique blend of performance art and edgy personal narrative storytelling, has made him a fixture at various performance venues around the Twin Cities and across the US. Howard can be reached at: hieberman@lieberman-nelson.com.
Loren Niemi
Co-Producer, Performer
Loren Niemi began as a child fibber but soon understood that he was less interested in telling lies than he was in improving the truth. For the last 40 years he has been an innovative professional storyteller creating, coaching/directing, performing and teaching stories about what matters to audiences of all ages in urban and rural settings. Loren tells the life he lives with immediacy, poetry and insight. He is a published author and poet including the chapbook, “Coyote Flies Coach”, the award winning "The New Book of Plots" on the use of narratives in oral and written forms and the co-author with Elizabeth Ellis of the critically acclaimed, "Inviting the Wolf In: Thinking About Difficult Stories" on the value and necessity of stories that are hard to hear and harder to tell. He is a 1998 Bush Foundation Leadership Fellow and a recipient of a 2016 National Storytelling Network Lifetime Achievement Award.
