Inspired by the wildly popular lecture circuits of the late 19th century, NTUSA’s Chautauqua! weaves lectures on history, culture and capitalism with live music, magic, slapstick, dance and melodrama, as it discovers the place of art and impulse in our changing culture of commerce. Invested with the signature theatrical bravura that earned this company an OBIE award for Design and the Spalding Gray Award for theatrical innovation, each night’s Chautauqua! features special guest lecturers, performers and surprises in a celebration of the culture we all share and the moment in which we share it.
