The Rat Race

Monday, March 28, 2011

The Greene Space and Yorinks Theater Group presented a two-day festival celebrating the life and work of a master American storyteller: Garson Kanin.

The festival featured the world premiere of the audio theater adaptation of Garson Kanin's classic Broadway play, The Rat Race.  The Yorinks Theater Group has taken this timeless New York City landscape and - for the first time ever - adapted it into a work not only for radio, but for radio's live audience in our multi-platform venue in the heart of Manhattan.

In addition, a lively discussion took place at The Greene Space diving into the work of Kanin as seen through the theater and film of the 20th century – participants were Charlotte Booker, John Rubinstein, Jay Binder, Philip Morgaman, and Howard Kissel.
