The Poetry Brothel is lit…erature. A fusion of poetry, sensuality and stagecraft, the burlesque review combines the erotic and the intellectual into one delightfully sexy spectacle. With names like Tennessee Pink, Penelope Strangelight, and Mona Mayhem the cast of The Poetry Brothel don alter egos — poetry “johns” and “whores”— for each performance. The breathy rhythms and intimacy of poetry readings are interspersed with burlesque acts that range from eye-popping, to sultry, to darkly erotic.
