Third Rail Projects brings another immersive theatrical experience to New York, following up last year's Grand Paradise. For six weeks, the company transform Lincoln Center's Clair Tow Theatre into a series of real and imaginary landscapes, inviting audiences into areas of the performance space which are usually off limits to the public in a unique tribute to the magic of the theatre.

After the Blast

October 7-November 19, 2017

The eminently talented playwright Zoe Kazan is back Off-Broadway this October, with a brand-new drama that tackles the aftermath of a human-made disaster. A timely piece of work that follows America's announcment that they will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, it will premiere at the Claire Tow Theatre for a limited time only. Kazan's previous works include Absalom, We Live Here, and Trudy and Max in Love. Her new drama will be directed by Lila Neugebauer (The Antipodes, The Wolves).
