"Other Voices in the Room" with The Poets' Theatre

When: Sunday, December 15, 2019, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street • 2nd fl. • Boston

The Poets’ Theatre has invited some of the most talented practioners of Rap, Hip Hop and Spoken Word to introduce modes of poetic expression you may have heard about but not experienced in a live performance.

The Poets’ Theatre was founded in Cambridge in 1950 by a bunch of young poets who became famous later such as John Ashbery, Richard Wilbur, Frank O’Hara, Richard Eberhart, Alison Lurie. The first staged reading of Dylan Thomas’ A CHILD’S CHRISTMAS IN WALES was a Poets’ Theatre production. Their Palmer St. theatre burned up in 1968 and so the PT remained invisible until a “wake” to remember it was held at the JFK Library in 1989 but the wake became a rebirth, and for the next dozen years the PT produced numerous events.

The Cast:

• Amanda Shea, spoken word artist, organizer, host and artist manager • Khadijah Aliyyah, spoken word poet and writer • Pedro “Flako” Cruz, documentary photographer and spoken word poet • Regie Gibson, literary performer • Phree, spoken word artist and founder of the Bois & Bullshit collective • Porsha Olayiwola, Boston Poet Laureate
