Eve Brandstein’s Poetry in Motion Presents WAITING FOR JACK, a tribute to Beat Poetry at Beyond Baroque in Venice, CAVENICE, CA – November 16: A lineup of L.A.’s poets and actors will perform poems by Beat Era icons in a re-creation of the historic 1955 Six Gallery poetry reading in a theatrical performance produced by Michael C. Ford, Rex Weiner and Eve Brandstein.The shamanistic evocation of the Beat Era, staged at Beyond Baroque, the legendary Venice poetry mecca, is

a “must see” for those who love Beat poetry and great performances.In this limited engagement on two dates—November 16 and December 7—today’s poets recall the lyrical language, powerful political commentary and eloquent insults of the influential writers of the Beat Era, all the while awaiting the arrival of “Jack” (Kerouac), who is always late to every engagement. Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Diane DiPrima, LeRoi Jones, Ann Waldman, and Gary Snyder are just few of the spirits conjured to appear in these two performances. Jack finally arrives, but in a magically unexpected manner.This 90-minute theatrical experience was created by Michael C. Ford and Rex Weiner, who play regulars in a mythic Beat cafe, summoning the poets who are introduced as they appear, and providing social commentary as the events and attitudes of the past reflect and are reinterpreted in new realities of our Millennial age. The performance is directed by Eve Brandstein and Rex Weiner.
