Immersive. Literary. Cabaret. Welcome to a unique and interactive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello needs a good cover; ours is an literary cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event. Oh how we can already see that bright green glitter in your eye— and in your hair and everywhere else. No need to pinch yourself, it’s here, it’s happening: The St. Patrick’s Day Drag Ball. Join us in this gender-bending, lyric-lending evening of glamour. It might be your lucky day. The evening’s festivities will be carried out by the burlesque stylings of Munroe Lilly, Clara Coquette, Puss N’ Boots, Feathers, mystics by Holy Crow, The Erotic Esoteric, and Rebecca Fey, sketches by sketchy sketch artist Too Loose, body painting by Liz Belomlinsky, and our house band Mute the Commercials. The festivities will be resided over by Mister Charley, The Madame, Tennessee Pink, and our guest co-host of the evening Momo Shade Doors open at 6:30pm. The show begins promptly at 7:30pm. Themed costumes are encouraged but not required.
