Playwright/Performing Artist/Spoken Word Poet/Actor, the multi-talented, Nick E. Finn is headed to Broadway! Well, maybe not tomorrow. But someday soon, you will surely see him on a Broadway stage. Until then, you can see him LIVE! on stage, January 28, – 30, 2016; where Spoken Word Poet, Nick E. Finn performs in his very own one-man show “THE LAST HIPSTER IN BROOKLYN” @ JACK Theater in Brooklyn, for a three-night engagement.
Brooklyn Gypsies, a theater-, poetry-, producing and teaching artists collective, presents its first-annual, One Catches Light Festival, to showcase the talents of NYC-based performers. Nick E. Finn will be one of three performers to appear in the 3-day stage production (of 3 individual plays).
Be sure to order your tickets to see “The Last Hipster in Brooklyn.” After seeing Nick perform at The National Black Theatre with the Full Circle Ensemble NYC‘s stage productions of “From The Page To The Stage” and “Misconceptions,” I have seen firsthand the talent that this young man possesses. He is definitely one of Brooklyn’s rising stars in performance art.

ABOUT ONE CATCHES LIGHT FESTIVAL:
Brooklyn Gypsies is proud to present the first-annual One Catches Light Festival, celebrating the new work of extraordinary NYC-based solo performers. In this inaugural festival, three unique solo artists will take the stage at the start of every hour from 7:00pm–10:00pm for three nights in January. Honesty, music, new love, and Brooklyn from three voices catch the light each evening.
Brooklyn Gypsies, led by Modesto “Flako” Jimenez, brings into being this first-annual festival celebrating the new work of NYC-based solo performers. For three nights, three solo artists in the Gypsies family will share a bill — Colie McClellan with “Arethusa Speaks,” Bay Bryan with “Growing Into My Beard” and Nick E. Finn with “The Last Hipster in Brooklyn.” Honesty, music, new love and Brooklyn from three voices catch the light each night.
ABOUT NICK E. FINN’S “THE LAST HIPSTER IN BROOKLYN”:
What is a hipster? “The Last Hipster in Brooklyn” is a one-man-show that captures a specific place and time in American history. By weaving a story that blends theater, spoken-word, and hip-hop, self-professed hipster Nick E. Finn takes on multiple perspectives and characters – both Brooklyn natives and transplants – to tell the story of 2015 Brooklyn.
As both a satire of the Hipster Subculture and a sincere ode to Brooklyn, Nick falls in love with BK, but then is forced to confront his own role in the borough’s gentrification and its rapidly changing identity. Will Nick be able to reconcile his love for the “Old Brooklyn” with his affiliation with the “New Brooklyn?” And will he be able to answer, once and for all – what is a hipster? Comedy, adventure, romance, and poetry come alive on stage when Nick E. Finn performs “The Last Hipster in Brooklyn.”
