About The Encyclopedia Show
Winner of a 2009 Orgie Theatre Award, The Encyclopedia Show concept is brought to you from the quirky minds of Chicago poets and producers Robbie Q Telfer and Shanny Jean Maney. The Encyclopedia Show showcases visual art, comedy, music and spoken word on a wide variety of subjects related to a chosen topic. For each show a new topic is picked at random from the encyclopedia and assignments are sent to a diverse group of writers, artists, poets and performers.
Encyclopedia Shows have popped up all across the nation, even as far away as Seoul, South Korea. The Indianapolis debut took place October 19, 2010 at the Indy Fringe Theater with a cast of local and notable artists, musicians, poets, and performers of all persuasions.
