Tuesday nights in the Fairfax section, the Da Poetry Lounge at the Greenway Court Theatre attracts diverse, electric crowds to witness comedy, poetry, acting, dance and song. Remarkably, it’s the only regular open-mic show of its type in L.A., so the talent level is high — which goes far to explain why it’s been running more than 15 years straight.
