Thanks to Tom Mohrman for writing up a nice recap of last night’s Breadline. He said things like:
Breadline has all the earmarks of a good poetry reading. Close quarters, unique setting, alcohol. It’s clear there were people in attendance who have been there for all three years of the show’s run. Churchy. This felt like church, as all sports events and poetry readings should. I mean, there was an offering. Take all the best trappings, I say, and remix.
The “churchy” atmosphere is as anti-church as it gets. Take the Unitarian ultra tolerance and apply to aesthetics, and maybe you’ll get Breadline. Or maybe not. What do you think? Regardless, Breadline’s an equal-opportunity experience-maker!
