Eve Brandstein's Poetry in Motion has a 30-year history of bringing award-winning actors, writers and poets together to create exceptional spoken word events. Past guest speakers have included Judd Nelson, Robert Downey Jr., Drew Barrymore, Alec Baldwin, and hundreds of others.
Refreshments will be available after both before and after the event and attendees will have an opportunity to meet the artists and buy books in the Beyond Baroque bookstore which is filled with thousands of rare volumes written by leading local writers.
Tickets are $15 online or $20 at the door. Purchasing a ticket before the event guarantees you get one of the best seats in the house at an event, which is likely to sell out. Performance starts at 8pm. Refreshments are available starting at 7:30pm. There is ample parking behind the theater and on Venice.
