Seductive cabaret for lovers of the spoken word
Poetry is more than just words. The Poetry Brothel takes the humble stanza and transforms it into an interactive literary experience. Inside a subterranean bordello, a cast of male and female "whores" take turns at providing intimate readings. With burlesque dancers, actors, and fortune-tellers all working their charms, The Poetry Brothel takes immersive cabaret to new heights. Over 21s only. Dress code: fancy dress or costumes encouraged but not required. VIP ticket includes reserved priority seating, a complimentary reading with the poet of your choice, a reading from the featured guest, and a Poetry Brothel tote bag filled with goodies.
