Responding to national protests and social isolation, Downtown Variety brings La MaMa's 1960s café aesthetic to a virtual platform that links performers and audiences in real time across distance.
Artists for this edition include: Peter Case, Maura García, Joshua William Gelb, Shauna Davis, Lisa Müller-Trede, and Don Aroji, with video art by Split Britches!
