The Poetry Brothel’s Tenth Annual Masquerade Ball

  • Things to do, Literary events

Time Out says

It’s a little like Eyes Wide Shut meets Dead Poets Society; the Brothel’s infamous, annual Halloween party heightens its already-sensual shows into a fully rapturous experience. For this year's edition, hosts Mister Charley, the Madame and Tennessee Pink welcome guest poet Steph Burt, burlesque sirens Mademoiselle Estelle and Puss N Boots, aerialists the Lost Boys, sketch artist Too Loose and palm reader and jewelry maker Holy Crow. Music comes by way of Sarian and house band the Hot Club of Flatbush. Be sure to bring a little extra pocket money for a private reading from one of the events many roaming poets. Iambic pentameter never sounded so sexy.
