Arnie’s Poetry Café
Named in loving memory of the late, great MV Poet Laureate emeritus Arnie Reisman, who founded the Playhouse’s Poetry Café and hosted dozens of Vineyard poets from 2014 – 2021. Arnie’s Poetry Café returned, in-person, in 2022. From January until April, each month featured a guest host and other poets. Videos are available to watch on our website.
