Imagine an episode of Law and Order with only two people in it. Now imagine those two people playing every character. Add a missing cat, a suicide prevention hotline worker who also once worked as a stripper, some lo-fi multimedia, and a hearty scoop of madcap campiness, and you’ll have a thick stew similar to acclaimed writer and performer Kim Katzberg’s new play Strays, where two actors (Katzberg, with Nora Woolley) take on a long list of character and an even longer list of hijinks.

Forget paying some guy to write a poem on his typewriter. This summer you’ll be able to type your own deep thoughts when the Typewriter Project comes to the East Village June 14 to July 19.
For those of you preparing for the spoken word romances of our dystopian future society a la Spike Jonze’s Her, we’ve got two Valentine’s Day happenings you don’t need a physical body to enjoy.
First, from 7 to 9 p.m. at 384 Broome Street, The Poetry Brothel is offering what its very own iteration of the “quickie,” in which you get to sidle up beside the “Poetry Whore” of your choosing and bask in 15 minutes worth of his or her sweet, sweet spoken words. In this case, physical existence doesn’t hurt the experience, as there are calligraphist body painters present to leave you with a parting gift.
