Atlas Obscura Live!
Atlas Obscura Live!
Hello New York friends!

It's time again for another Atlas Obscura LIVE! In previous shows, we've delved into the worlds of SIN, SCANDAL, and IMPOSTERS, but this December, we're getting into the spirit of the HOLIDAYS! Our live variety show brings our own writers and editors together with musicians, scholars, comedians, performers, and special guests Brittain Ashford (The Great Comet, Prairie Empire), Tony Zaret (The Meme Team Podcast), Raj Sivaraman (Jeopardy), and Sabra Lewis (Former Radio City Rockette) to share wondrous acts and amazing stories, all based around our festive shows of celebration and jubilation.
