Under The Radar 2022
Thank you for being a member of The Public Theater community, and Happy New Year.
We are sharing the unfortunate news that we have decided to cancel this year’s UNDER THE RADAR FESTIVAL.
While our robust COVID-19 protocols have created a safe environment within our theaters, multiple disruptions related to the rapid community spread of the Omicron variant - including artist and staff availability, artist and audience cancellations, major flight interruptions, and visa processing delays - have prevented a viable way to move forward with presenting UNDER THE RADAR 2022.
This is incredibly disappointing, but we believe it is necessary given the continued surge and ongoing disruptions.If you are a ticket holder, expect an email from us with more info.
Thank you for your understanding as we all work through the continued challenges of COVID-19 together.
Note, THE ART OF THEATER & WITH MY OWN HANDS is still being presented by PS21 in Chatham NY. Tickets are still available.
