Durham is not the capitol of North Carolina, but it is definitely capturing a lot of attention. Durham is like the new, old cool.

Durham is often overlooked compared to its adjacent cities and towns by “outsiders”, but those on the “inside” applaud the city for its seasoned, antique like energy; its revolutionary, yet soft and subtle vibes; its ability to intertwine and engage across the Carolinian demographics. Durham is to Harlem, what the Blues is to Jazz.

I’ve been going to the Under the Radar Festival in Manhattan for the last several years. It is organized by and largely run out of the downtown citadel of off-beat theatre, the Public on Lafayette Street and LaMama just a few blocks away. Over the last 8 years I have seen theatre companies from Belarus, Argentina, Japan, Holland and Belgium, England, Italy and even Austin, Texas. I’ve seen theatres from across the 5 boroughs, too. What I haven’t seen, alas, is any representatives from the southeastern United States (sorry, Austin, you don’t count). This has worried me for awhile. … Read More
