Brian Dykstra Selling Out
“They tell us money can’t buy happiness, but we’d all like to find out for ourselves, wouldn’t we?” So says Def Poetry Jam alum, actor, and award-winning playwright Brian Dykstra as he launches another of his wordplay-enlivened rants on the intertwined topics of money and power. To him, “selling out” has many different meanings. He’d love to sell out the theater, but he refuses to sell his soul to do it. (Fortunately, he notes, spoken word poetry doesn’t pay, so there’s not much risk of that.) Part standup comedy, part slam poetry, and part soapbox tirade, Brian Dykstra Selling Out is designed to leave audiences angry and laughing about it.
The Playroom Theater
The Playroom Theater is small by design. Founder Eric Krebs has produced shows on Broadway, but with this space, he says on the the theater's website, "I want this to be a place where industry professionals can pop over for a reading, a backer's audition or a small production of a work in progress." Just five rows of seats and a stage fill a black-box theater that's ideal for one-person shows or any emotionally intimate work of theater.
