Actor Jonathan Levin and playwright Josh Luxenberg, a Baltimore native, join us to talk about their new play, A Hunger Artist, which opens at Baltimore Theatre Project next week after acclaimed runs Off-Broadway in New York and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.
A Hunger Artist, which is based on the Franz Kafka short story of the same name, uses physical theater, Victorian miniatures, puppetry and a set of simple props to support a powerhouse performance.
Luxenberg wrote the script. Levin is the show’s only performer. They are co-founders and co-artistic directors of Sinking Ship Productions, a theater company based in Brooklyn, NY. For more information about the upcoming Baltimore run of A Hunger Artist and for tickets, click here.
Josh and Jon join Tom on the line from Argot Studios in New York.
A Hunger Artist runs December 14th through 17th at The Theatre Project, located at 45 W. Preston St., Baltimore, MD 21201.
