Poetry Brothel moonlighting

So you've got a few old journals full of poetry from your moody and turbulent youth collecting dust on your bookshelf. You've got that incredible mask you bought four halloweens ago that you've been dying to don again for one more grand hurrah. And of course there's that itch to perform, for real, if only just one time, on a stage, in front of a room packed with strangers. We feel you, it's real. Perhaps it's time to put it all together and Moonlight with The Poetry Brothel. We're inviting our biggest fans and most devoted friends to spend a night working and performing as special guest Poetry Whore. For the low, low price of $250 we'll pair you with a mentor from our cast, who will show you the ropes and help you whip a few of those old sonnets into shape, and give you a night you'll never forget. For more information of Moonlighting with The Poetry Brothel contact Can't wait to share the stage with you darling!
