Catherine the Great. Salome. Langston Hughes. Icarus. Tupac Amaru II. Vita Sackville-West. William Booth. They’re all ready for their close-ups. Or are they? TV Men is a new multimedia production inspired by the poetry of Anne Carson and directed by nimbus co-artistic director Josh Cragun. By placing a selection of larger-than-life historic and literary figures (the original celebrities) under the scrutiny of the modern media lens, the play interrogates the role of celebrity in our society.
