Great Barrington – Taylor Mali, renowned slam poetry performer, returns to Upstairs Live at the Triplex for his annual summer show. This year’s show will be a riveting blend of poetry, spoken word and storytelling. With equal measures of humor, heartbreak, insight, and desire, this is not your grandmother’s poetry reading (but she would love him!). Mali’s new one-man show will be presented Thursday, July 19th at 9 pm.
One of the original poets to appear on the seminal HBO series “Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry”, Mali gives a unique and enthralling performance that had The New York Times describe him as a “ranting comic showman and a literary provocateur.”
