About Poetry & Play
Nationally acclaimed poets bring their theatre-related poetry to Central New York via the new online series from Syracuse Stage, Poetry & Play.
The online video series is an extension of an existing live performance series that paired poets and poetry with similarly themed Syracuse Stage plays. The move to presenting the series online is part of Syracuse Stage’s response to the closure of theaters due to Covid-19. The online version will feature poets and actors self-recording and reading poems written about experiences in the theatre. New installments will appear in your email inbox every other Monday.
