"Cry Out!": New Play Resurrects Poet-Activist Allen Ginsberg Nov 1 & 2 at 8 pm, and on Nov 3 at 2 pm San Francisco Cry Out! resurrects the prophetic voice of America’s Beat Poet Laureate, Allen Ginsberg. Written and performed by Jesse Rabinowitz, under the direction of Steve Forth, Cry Out! tells the strange, creative journey of Allen Ginsberg, whose shocking poetry, radical vision, and compassionate activism changed the course of American society in the late 20th century. Weaving Ginsberg’s explosive and innovative poetry with vignettes of his remarkable life, Cry Out will move and inspire, educate and awaken. Cry Out! had its world premiere in Richmond, VA, in July, 2000, playing to enthusiastic, standing-room-only houses, with a subsequent runs in Austin, Texas and the New York Open Center in 2001. Cry Out! will next be seen at the New College of California Cultural Center, 766 Valencia St., San Francisco, on November 1 & 2 at 8 p.m., and on November 3 at 2 p.m.. Tickets: $15 at the door. Produced by Shard Live Performance Collective, in collaboration with New College of California. Ginsberg poetry used by permission of the Allen Ginsberg Trust. Note: Cry Out! contains adult content.
