For those unawares, I'm debuting my first solo poetry show in May and I'll be launching a new type of poetry format I'm calling "performance journalism." This project involves me interviewing fascinating people and telling their stories via spoken word, using real quotes and extensive research to infuse the poetry with hyper-realism.
Coming to Toronto May 10 to Al Green Theatre, this show features six profilees, and two weeks ago I revealed the first trailblazer, who contributed greatly to Holocaust education and chazzanut in Canada.
Now, the second reveal...JUDY PERLY, owner of Free Times Cafe on College Street in Toronto!
Her story is enthralling, whether you've tasted the glory that is Free Times' Jewish brunch buffet on Sundays. If you want a peek of the food available at that historic buffet, check out the video above.
I don't want to say much more about Judy's story and the Cafe's relationship to Jewish Toronto, so you'll have to come to my show to find out! Contact me for details anytime.
Next week, I'll reveal my next profile subject...Stay tuned!
