About The Poetry Brothel

Summer is around the corner and what better way to embrace the coming heat than to join the Poetry Brothel for their 2nd annual Wilde Pride event. This year, plan to get weird!

Come enjoy non-stop punnilingus that knows no humility, deep brainal for those who want to push their literary boundaries, and an array of gorgeous talented tongues for the metaphoric tasting.

Don your dapper 19th century attire and come revel in a night of grammatical debauchery!

Madam Tallula presents a rotating cast of poets who impart their work as purveyors of private poetry readings in secret, hidden, well-appointed chambers. You may avail yourself of your choice of poet for tokens at any time during the event.

On the patio, the troupe presents Tarot readings, poetic souvenirs, live typewriter poetry, and occasional burlesque and musical performances.

On the stage, a three-hour roster of Vaudeville variety entertainment and words, words, words.

The El Cid tapas kitchen and bar will be open for dinner and drinks throughout.

In addition to its poets, The Poetry Brothel presents artists and activists working in a variety of mediums both on stage and through its ever-changing array of intimate, interactive, and creative services. Artists performing with the Brothel are male, female, faeries, sea creatures, witches, aliens, POC, straight, queer, emerging, established, local, international, virgins, whores, and everything in between.
