“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

From Shakespeare, Lord Byron, Pablo Neruda, Langston Hughes, and more, we’re celebrating the greatest love poets from around the world! Pick your favorite and perform a famous love poem, monologue, or scene on our stage. Or simply sit back and enjoy the performances of the night! All are welcome during this open mic night highlighting the greatest love poets of our time.

The talented and always entertaining, John Zak (most recently seen as “Nick Bottom” in our 2015 spring production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream), will be returning to our stage to serve as MC for the night.

$10 per person; performers are $5. Complimentary wine and cheese will be provided. Performance time may not exceed 3 minutes; content must be by a known author and related to the topic of love.
