Experience a Verbal AdventureMayhem Poets met as students at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, drawn together by a shared passion for wordplay and open mics. These New Jersey natives combine hip-hop, poetry, and current issues in a show that is fast-paced, funny, creative, and thought-provoking. Your students will leave the show with a new appreciation for the power of well-chosen and well-spoken words—and motivation to write their own spoken-word pieces. In 2007, Mayhem Poets won the Microsoft Idea Wins challenge, a national competition looking for innovative ideas for new small businesses. They used the prize to open Slam Chops, a spoken word poetry club in New York City.
