The evening before, the 42-year-old Stranger Things star talked about how he feels about Merriam-Webster ‘honoring’ his body as a dictionary example of a “dad bod” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. This popular and highly-anticipated program of The Public‘s winter season will include artists from across the U.S. and around the world. Curated by UTR Festival Director Mark Russell, this year’s Under The Radar festival expands to venues throughout New York City in addition to The Public Theater’s home at Astor Place. Work by innovative artists Dickie Beau, Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen, David Cale, Adam Gopnik and much more will be featured at The Public. Before flying outta the deadly cold of New York to launch into terrible red carpet photos in LA, i’d like to take a moment to appreciate @JetBlue who picked up ball dropped by @Delta at the @PublicTheaterNY this past summer. Proud to fly the friendlier artistic skies with them. — David Harbour (@DavidKHarbour) January 5, 2018.....»»
