Discover the stars of tomorrow at the Public's annual theater festival
Equivalent to the World's Fair of theatre, Under the Radar is the Public Theater's annual fete showcasing the stars of tomorrow. Over the course its 12-day run, 16 different shows from artists including 600 HIGHWAYMEN, Edgar Oliver, Toshi Reagon and SKaGeN roll through the Public or one of the festival's partner venues, which this year include La MaMa, St. Ann's Warehouse and Japan Society. Traveling in for the occasion are Japan's Niwa Gekidan Penino with The Room Nobody Knows, Algerian-born Swiss choreographer and visual artist Philippe Saire with Black Out and Argentinian artist Lola Arias who presents a work that explores Pinochet's dictatorship through the memories of eleven Chileans. Also of note is John Hodgman's one-man show, I Stole Your Dad, and Obie Award winner Roger Guenveur Smith's improvised performance where he unravels the myth of Rodney King. Be sure to stop by the festival lounge late-night for music and performances by Ethan Lipton, AndrewAndrew, and the Middle Church Jeriesse Johnson Gospel Choir.
