CityParks Theater: National Theatre of the USA's Chautaqua
along the East River btwn Grand & Jackson Streets
The NTUSA will channel the form and style of the original Chautauqua Lectures, a wildly popular lecture circuit that flourished from 1874 to the Great Depression, through its own inimitable aesthetic and theatrical rhythm, exploring the still hotly debated relationship between High Culture and the Mass Mind.
