Off-Broadway ice fishing

Nice-Fish-BrooklynNice Fish, Mark Rylance’s play based on the poetry of former Duluthian Louis Jenkins, made its off-Broadway debut at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn on Feb. 14 and continues its run through March 13. An article in The New Yorker notes Jenkins’ poems, “which are syncopated reveries about bologna sandwiches, sea lions, and the meaning of life, are integral to the Nice Fish script.”

Rylance won an Oscar on Sunday for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the Steven Spielberg film Bridge of Spies.

In a world filled with overly precious poetry you need an advanced degree in cryptology to halfway understand, Louis Jenkins' poems are a refreshing joy to read. Rylance's acceptance "speech" at the Tony awards might have been mentioned on PDD before, not sure. It's worth watching him recite a poem by Louis.
