Event description

Description

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.

Doors open at 7pm with a happy hour and live jazz from 7-8pm. The show begins at 8pm with public performances from 8-11pm. An after party, complete with a DJ, private poetry readings, tarot readings, and other mystical experiences will run from 11pm until 2am. Costumes are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+. For more information, please visit thepoetrybrothel.com.

Tickets to our Halloween events ALWAYS sell out, so please purchase your tickets early! If you can't make it before 11pm, a limited number of after party tickets may be sold at the door for $20 if space becomes available. If you happen to be in the neighborhood late, stop by and see us!

The Poetry Brothel is brought to you by The Poetry Society of New York. Become a member for free and discounted admission to The Poetry Brothel!
