NY Obscura Society: Atlas Obscura Live! RIVALS

We're bringing the wonder of Atlas Obscura to the stage with our very first variety show!

Attention New York, we are proud to announce the first installment of Atlas Live! Our brand-new, live variety show brings our own writers and editors together with musicians, scholars, comedians, performers, and special guests to share wondrous acts and amazing stories, all based around the website's monthly theme.

The first ever Atlas Obscura Live Show will bring our editorial content to life as we explore the drama and passion of this month's theme- RIVALS! Delight in dueling performance acts and hear tales of bitter rivalries; see astonishing contests and other acts. There will be comedy, trivia, prizes, and more! Featuring appearances by PBS Idea Channel's Mike Rugnetta and the stars of the FiveThirtyEight Elections Podcast. Actor, writer and D-list YouTuber Shyaporn Theerakulstit compares the technology of Star Trek and Star Wars. Writer Ross Hyzer delves into a college sports rivalry that got its start in the Civil War, and continues to be an uncomfortable contest today. Our surprise musical guests perform dueling banjos! Atlas writers get to the bottom of the great New England convenience store wars as they attempt to settle the Sheets vs Wawa debate once and for all. Come out to Union Hall in Brooklyn and experience the uncensored, thoroughly fascinating, and altogether riveting live version of the Atlas Obscura you know and love.
