Even if Liza Jessie Peterson -- international Poet and Women's Activist -- hadn’t attended the prestigious National Shakespeare Conservatory, made a cameo in Spike Lee’s Bamboozled, had plays performed at the Whitney, or won poetry slams at the Nuyorican Poetry Café, this self-described “tour-de-force Renaissance woman” would still have her most defining accomplishment: teaching and motivating incarcerated youth at Riker’s Island.
Actor, poet, playwright, teacher. Liza Jessie Peterson’s activist spirit compels her to reveal human truths via a mash-up of mystic-artistic guises. A Night With Liza Jessie Peterson shines a serious yet comedic light on various social injustices through a carnival of characters that will make you laugh out loud. The show features music, theater, and poetry based fittingly around the theme of finding light in dark places.
