Seanchai Justin Sayre

Gearing up for his new piece with The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History (10/26), Rite of Water, based on the life and work of the Poet Hart Crane, Justin Sayre (The Meeting*, Night of a Thousand Judys) reads selections from a collection of his own poetry.

Justin Sayre – best known as the creator and writer of the hit downtown comedy/variety show The Meeting*(2012 Bistro Award, 2011 MAC Nominee) and its annual benefit “Night of A Thousand Judys” – was described by Michael Musto in The Village Voice as “Oscar Wilde meets Whoopi Goldberg.” In a recent story for Edge New York, Steve Weinstein said “Comedian, raconteur, performing artist, gay rights activist and sexual outlaw: I’m not sure Justin Sayre is classifiable. The veteran performer is on his way to becoming a Downtown Manhattan institution along the lines of Charles Ludlum or Charles Busch.” An evening of his short plays, “Justin Sayre Is Alive and Well… Writing” – called one of the “Top 10 Events on the New York Stage” by the New York Daily News – sold out two shows at Ars Nova last April. A reading of his play, The Click of The Lock, is set for this November.
