Season 5: Episode 10

This episode is audio from Necromancers of the Public Domain: Broadway Racketeers.

It was recorded on February 29, 2024.

Theater of the Apes, Library Futures, and the Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy bring you this very special Public Domain Day presentation of Necromancers of the Public Domain.

Performers skilled in the art of necromancy will transform the book Broadway Racketeers (plucked from the shelves of the New York Society Library's public domain class of 2024) into a one-night-only variety show. The necromancers will be joined by music from Miss Maybell and the Jazz Age Artistes and updates on efforts to establish a National Public Domain Day.

Necromancers include:

Nick Balaban (Hello, Cruel World / Blues Clues)

Ellia Bisker & Heather Cole (Charming Disaster / Funkrust Brass Band)

Bryce Edwards (The Bryce Edwards Frivolity Hour)

Dejen Tesfagiorgis (Deja Deja Comedy)

Hosted by Ayun Halliday (Creative, Not Famous / The East Village Inky)
