Eve Brandstein has a 30-year history of bringing leading actors, writers and poets together to create exceptional spoken word events.
As a major studio & network executive, Norman Lear's casting director & co-producer, a professional director, working writer, perpetual poet & fine artist, Eve launched her Poetry in Motion Literary Salon in 1998, at Helena's in Hollywood.
Since then she has presented original work from some of the entertainment industry's most remarkable talents both before and after they became well known, including Alec Baldwin, Judd Nelson, Robert Downey Jr, Drew Barrymore, John Barrymore, Justine Bateman, Anne Beatts, Roxanne Beckford, Ed Begley Jr., Yvonne de la Vega and many many more.
Poetry in Motion has long been known as a warm "well lighted place" for creative minds at every stage of their artistic and professional development.
Scheduled to appear at The Road Not Taken:
Attend this event to hear great spoken word performances, meet the speakers and one another, share wine and snacks, and check out the Beyond Baroque Bookstore which contains many thousands of rare and hard to find works from leading Los Angeles Writers new and old.
Poetry in Motion always sells out and this time we’re scheduled for 8pm on a Saturday night. By buying a ticket rather than showing up at the door without one you’ll not only save $5, you’ll be sure of a good seat in the theater which may be standing room only.
Its best to arrive a bit early because we do tend to start on time. You'll find parking easy in the lots and streets behind and around Beyond Baroque.
