One of the most talked-about companies to emerge in recent years from New York’s vital downtown theater community, 600 Highwaymen presents its latest hit among audience members seated on the McGuire Theater stage. The work tests the limits of individual and collective responsibility as well as our willingness to be there for one another—themes that resonate more urgently than ever in fractured and factionalized present-day United States. Performed in complete collaboration with the audience (participation optional), The Fever examines ways that we assemble, organize, and care for the bodies around us. Copresented with the National Performance Network (NPN). 90 minutes.

Limited capacity.

Please note: the performance on Wednesday, January 17, has been cancelled.

The Fever is presented as part of Out There 2018.
