Drop everything & come! The Chicago Poetry Brothel Explores the Seamy Side of Poetry.
Come for the most enjoyment you ever had in a bordello! A stage show of enough splendor to match the startling grandeur of the Foundation Room itself— floods of love-lorn poetry whores, whiskey, vaudeville, dancers, fortune tellers— Pinch and Squeal out of Cleveland, OH &; Lula Houp-Garou!
The Poetry Brothel, a unique and immersive poetry experience, takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Poetry Brothel presents poets as high courtesans who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on couches, chaise lounges and in private rooms.
