You Got VERRRSED—–NJ Poets vs NY Poets

Fri, 6/23/23 @ 7:00PM - 10:00PM

NJPAC Arts Ed., 24 Rector Street, Newark, NJ 07102


2 Teams of poets—one from New Jersey, one from New York—going head-to-head!

YOU GOT VERRRRSED: NJ vs NY is a performing arts showcase combining poetry slam with shows like MTV’s Wild ‘N Out. Two teams of poets will compete in a four-round competition with bragging rights on the line. At the end of the night, the audience decides with their cheers, claps, and snaps who will be the winning team. This event will also include special out-of-competitive performances to be announced.

* Team New Jersey, Captained by Elliot Fant (P.O.M.E.)

* Team New York, Captained by Paul Con Queso
