Quickdraw Poetry Cabaret is a velvet bon bon and a smoking gun, a one-hour live show that blends poetry, improvisation, burlesque, song, and dueling typewriters.
Created in the moment with the audience every night, Quickdraw pits performers against each other in poetry duels based on suggestions from the audience. Plus, there's a typewriter band and a burlesque dancer stalking the poets! Here, the risqué, social critique, and satire live side-by-side.
"...high-spirited demonstration of masterful word play, ticklish nonsense and bawdy humor, which never seems to run out of pleasant surprises." -Lovell Estell III, Stage Raw
"Be prepared to be riveted by music, sultry dance, breathy orations and defiant provocations. Its ALL about the ‘word‘...you will be energetically revived." -Tracey Paleo, Gia on the Move
'...one of the best nights of live performance in town" - Pauline Adamek, ArtsBeatLA
