Mayhem Poets
Wednesday, February 09, 2011 @ 7 p.m. in McShea Commons

From the Mayhem Poets webstite:

“Let’s go see a poetry show.” That is a sentence rarely proclaimed and usually responded to with cringes and excuses. The Mayhem Poets are on a mission to change that. Having been dubbed “an amazing ride” by the New York Times, this mind boggling performance has been described as “The Simpsons meets Malcolm X at a Notorious B.I.G. concert”. These theatre trained, comedically gifted, lyrical virtuosos seamlessly blend raw elements of hip hop, theatre, improv and stand up comedy to tell gut wrenching truths that leave audiences forever changed.

Contact or ext. 1721 for more info.

These events are free and open to the entire DeSales University Community.
