The Living Stage at Hotel RL incorporates authors, artists, musicians, community leaders, local start-up and more. From lectures to performances to hands-on demonstrations, see what is happening next at The Living Stage.
As creative writer, Jack Hubbell has had a presence on the local spoken word poetry scene for the past fifteen plus years and hosted an open mic gathering under the name “PROVOKE” from 2008 to 2012. As with any ‘open mic’, individual writers would transit across the stage and make their presence known for a limited orgasmic outpouring of self and then retire, but for me it was always the ones with the staying power—who wrote because they simply could not do otherwise—that ultimately endeared themselves to me. And here upon the Hotel RL’s Living Stage I hope to present poets from both Omaha and Council Bluffs who indeed live for printed ink and spoken word.
Featured poets: Randy Gustafson, Deirdre Evans, Steve Evans, Heidi Hermanson, Dustin Lutz, Diona Poff and Jack Hubbell
