Mouth to Mouth Open Mic
Master Lee & Sung Rno

Our riotous Open Mic this week features Master (of comedy and karate) Lee and Sung (playwright genius) Rno. Open your mouth and say ahh—or say a poem! Or say a story! Or say a skat! Say anything! The sky (or at least the tin ceiling of Chelsea digs) is the limit at our open mic series.

Master Lee began as a street performer in Washington Square Park. He went on to do stand-up comedy, appearing on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, MTV, Showtime at the Apollo and Sesame Street. Master Lee has taught storytelling at the Rubin Museum of Art and Performance Art at New York University.

Sung Rno’s plays and poems are included in the anthologies But Still, Like Air, I’ll Rise; Premonitions; Echoes Upon Echoes, and The Nuyorasian Anthology. Honors include an NEA/TCG playwriting fellowship, Whitfield Cook Prize, New York Fringe Festival Best Overall Production Award (for Yi Sang Counts to Thirteen, directed by the author), Van Lier/New Dramatists fellowship. and commissions from the New York Shakespeare Festival, Dance Theater Workshop, Mark Taper Forum, Ma-Yi Theater Company, and Ensemble Studio Theater/Sloan Foundation. He received a BA from Harvard and an MFA from Brown.

$5 suggested donation. This event is open to the public.

Sign up at 8:30pm for a 5-minute slot.
