Photos: First Look at Darrel Alejandro Holnes' Stepmotherland At Thomas March's Poetry/Cabaret

The event is part of NYC's bimonthly Variety Salon.

On Friday, 2/25, before a capacity crowd at The Green Room 42, Broadway's Bryan Terrell Clark (Thoughts Of A Colored Man) and Garrett Turner (Thoughts Of A Colored Man), as well as actress, model, and DJ, Mari Malek, and actor and writer Daniel K. Isaac (Showtime's "Billions") helped celebrate the release of Darrel Alejandro Holnes' Stepmotherland, at Thomas March's Poetry/Cabaret. The even is part of NYC's bimonthly Variety Salon.

Darrel and Thomas offered a new take on being "in conversation" as they guided the audience through an evening of poetry, song, and comedy celebrating the collection's themes. Emotionally intense and volatile as always, the show also featured comedy, musical performances, and readings from Peggy Robles-Alvarado, Christin Eve Cato, Genesis Adelia Collado, Michael Manzi, Nicole Vanessa Ortiz, Andres Santiago Pina, Pavar Snipe, and Lyra Vega. Napoleon Douglas was on drums. And, as always, Music Director Drew Wutke kept things lively and smooth.
