The Green Room 42 Presents POETRY/CABARET: STRANGE
The coffeehouse meets the cabaret, as poets and performers attempt to stave off their Seasonal Affective Disorder on Friday, October 12, in "Poetry/Cabaret: STRANGE" at The Green Room 42. Curated and hosted by Thomas March, author of the newly-released collection Aftermath, the "Poetry/Cabaret" series unites poets and performers in an evening of wild variations on a theme.
As comedians, singers, storytellers, musicians and other artists alternate with the poets to offer their own takes on the evening's theme, sometimes they amplify each other-and sometimes they go in completely unexpected directions. This fast-paced, multi-genre variety show keeps the audience on its toes-get ready for a heartbreaking and hilarious evening of emotional whiplash!
This episode of Poetry/Cabaret will feature poetry from Willa Carroll, Timothy Liu, Jason Schneiderman, along with performances by poet and drag artist Wo Chan, Amy Ackerman, Mike Albo, Samantha Fontana, and Alexander Paris.
