One New York Plaza

Created by Bessie Award-winning Third Rail Projects (Jennine Willett, Tom Pearson, Zach Morris, Artistic Directors), Roadside Attraction is a versatile new work housed in and around a vintage 1977 Coleman pop-up camper that has been retrofitted to become the stage and setting for a new dance/theater performance, which incorporates the intimate, quirky, stunning and startling choreographic sensibility that is the hallmark of Third Rail’s critically-acclaimed work.

Roadside Attraction is a family vacation that steps back in time to when Supertramp was on the radio, Connect Four was on the folding table, and frisky business was in the bunks. Mom’s red “Candies” clapped from the camper’s linoleum kitchen window before she emerged in her cheetah print bathing suit with matching blanket, her platinum wig blowing in the breeze. Exploring expectations, acceptance, and the excruciating but illuminating identification with family role models, Roadside Attraction is a slice of nostalgic Americana, replete with string lights and lawn chairs.
