EARLVILLE – The Earlville Opera House presents more fun in the summer with the second in a series of free Family Series Events. This upbeat performance celebrates the spoken word traditions of urban youth culture with the Mayhem Poets on Saturday at 4 p.m. This event is generously sponsored by NBT Bank.
“Let’s go see a poetry show!” This sentence is one that is rarely proclaimed and may normally be responded to with cringes and excuses by the uninitiated. The Mayhem Poets would like 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 thought-provoking truths that leave audiences forever changed.
