Barbara Aliprantis began listening to stories “in-utero” and was born with the gift of gab, the ability to eavesdrop and integrate what she sees and hears into stories, all with a natural wit and a love of laughter. These gifts have made her the eclectic woman she is today: storyteller/listener, actress, comic, mimic, improviser, artist, sign language instructor, wordsmith, a much sought out mentor and finally, an impresario who loves to put on a show at the drop of a hat.
