30 Poems in 60 Minutes

By Byrne Harrison

On Friday, April 30th, and Saturday, May 1st, the New York Neo-Futurists will present a poetry-themed version of their critically acclaimed signature show, Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind. This ever-changing, lightning-paced performance of 30 Poems In 60 Minutes will be dedicated to theater that is poetic, musical, lyrical, powerful and that sometimes rhymes.

30 Poems In 60 Minutes will feature New York Neo-Futurists Jill Beckman, Desiree Burch, Cara Francis, Kevin R. Free, Ryan Good, Daniel McCoy, Rob Neill, Joey Rizzolo and Lauren Sharpe. They will be joined by alumni Claudia Alick and F. Omar Telan.

Tickets are $10.00 plus the roll of a six-sided die ($11-$16) at the door. Advance tickets are $16.00 and can be purchased online or by calling 212-352-3101.

In Honor of Poem in Your Pocket Day on April 27th, the Neos will be extending their "poetic footprint" by creating a series of wild postings throughout New York City honoring poems past, present, and Neo-future.
