According to the great Oscar Wilde, "Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth." That couldn't be more true at The Poetry Brothel, and our 10th Annual Masquerade Ball (10th annual, what?!) promises to bring you more truth, beauty, hilarity, and intimacy than ever before. We're bringing back one of our favorites, esteemed guest poet Steph Burt, along with burlesque artists Mademoiselle Estelle & Puss N Boots, aerialists The Lost Boys, house band The Hot Club of Flatbush, musical act Sarian, sketchy sketch artist Too Loose, palm reader and jewelry maker Holy Crow, a slew of poetry whores, and, of course, your hosts, The Madame, Mister Charley, and Tennessee Pink. This one will surely be a celebration for the ages--bigger, better, truer, and weirder than ever!
Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 9pm. Masks and/or formalwear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.
