Poets Staceyann Chin and Georgia Me take their bow at the Nov. 14 Broadway opening night of Def Poetry Jam.

The unique theatrical offering, a first for slam-style poetry on the Great White Way, features an award-winning nine-member troupe versifying issues of culture, stereotyping, love, death, food, music and the future. Russell Simmon's Def Poetry Jam, originally an HBO series, plays the Longacre Theatre under the direction of Stan Lanthan.
