On SUNDAY, JANUARY 19, 2014 at the Under The Radar Festival Culturebot hosted a Long Table to discuss American Theater & The Aesthetics of Democracy.

The early 20th century gave birth to a national Little Theater movement that rejected the hegemony of commercially-driven New York City shows and embraced a more community-based, locally responsive model of theater. Over time this grew into today’s large regional theater system. As a new generation discovers the values of Little Theater, how will this shape the future of American Theater?

Abigail Browde (600 Highwaymen)
Jess Chayes & Nick Benacerraf (The Assembly)
Jan Cohen Cruz (Editor, Public: A Journal of Imagining America)
