Wednesday Night Open Mic @ Sophie's at Broadway - Music, Comedy, Poetry

The Inspired Word presents EVERY Wednesday night one of the hottest open mics in the country at one of the coolest spots on the planet, Sophie's at Broadway, in Manhattan's Theater District.

Totally upscale, cool, and state-of-the-art.

Completely fresh, intimate cabaret atmosphere.

Anything but your ordinary, dreary open mic. This is the crème de la crème.

Raised stage. Theatrical lighting and Peavey sound. Sennheiser vocal and instrument microphones. Behringer stage monitors. Yamaha Baby Grand Piano!

Also, a professional house technician on hand to take care of your specific needs.

Produced by the nationally-known, long-running independent open mic series, The Inspired Word, which has been appeared on MTV's Washington Heights, the Travel Channel's Hidden City, and the Spirit Network's City Girl Diaries, as well as featured Grammy winners, American Idol finalists, Golden Globe Award winners, Emmy nominated actors, Obie Award winners, and HBO stars, this open mic is open to ALL types of performing artists - comedians, musicians, storytellers, singers, poets, fiction/nonfiction writers, playwrights, spoken word artists, performance artists, dancers, and whatever else imaginable.
