Boston's arts scene is thriving off the main stage. This week, Under the Radar with Callie Crossley looked at all things arts- from the imaginative and risque’ theater adaptations of Chekhov and Shakespeare, to a Newton native who went undercover to gather material for a provocatively themed play, to a no frills Cambridge hotspot where you can find some jazz greats jamming out.

Guests:

  • Alicia Anstead: editor of Inside Arts Magazine, the Harvard Arts Blog, and The Writer magazine.
  • Joel Brown: a North Shore-based arts writer for The Boston Globe and author of the HubArts blog 
  • Susanna Jackson: arts and entertainment editor for DigBoston
