Photo Coverage: Inside Opening Night of Public Theater's UNDER THE RADAR Festival

The Public Theater (Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis; Executive Director, Patrick Willingham; UTR Festival Director, Mark Russell) began performances for the 2013 UNDER THE RADAR FESTIVAL last night, January 9. Now in its ninth year, this acclaimed downtown festival committed to tracking new theater from across the U.S. and around the world will run for 12 days through January 20 at The Public Theater at Astor Place. Excluding Life and Times, all single tickets to UTR shows are $20; Member tickets are $15.

BroadwayWorld brings you photos from the opening night celebration below!

The UNDER THE RADAR FESTIVAL will again offer the "UTR Pack," which grants admission to any five shows (except Taylor Mac and Life and Times) for only $75. Discounted tickets to Life and Times will also be available for Public Theater Members and "UTR Pack" holders. Single tickets may be purchased at The Public Theater Box Office at 425 Lafayette Street; online at www.publictheater.org or by phone at 212-967-7555.

For the first time, this acclaimed annual festival will take place entirely at The Public Theater's home on Lafayette Street. A late night Festival Lounge in The Public's lobby and Shiva Theater for artists and audiences to gather after performances will also be offered. During the festival, where more than 90 performances will be presented in a 12-day marathon of theater, The Library at The Public will also be open nightly for food and drink, beginning at 5:30 p.m., and Joe's Pub will continue to offer some of the best music in the city.

The Festival Lounge, located in The Public's Shiva Theater and newly revitalized lobby, will offer a place for patrons and artists of the festival to come together, create new connections, and exchange ideas. The lounge will also feature DJs and a cash bar beginning Thursday, January 10 at 9:30 p.m. to late night. Dates of the lounge are January 10-14 and 17-20, 9:30 p.m. to late night.
