US Weekly meets The Onion in The Radish, a cheeky gossip rag devoted to downtown theatre. Conceived of by theatrical media mogul Kippy Winston, The Radish covers the highs and lows, the joyful, the questionable, the juicy and the smoothies. La crème de gossip irreverént. Online and in print for special occasions.
Artist Statement: My young friend very earnestly told me that Young Jean Lee was having a baby. I couldn’t believe my ears. He insisted. The Radish was born.
OR Why do we make theatre? Who cares? Isn’t it fun to trade scraps of gossip about our community? The Radish is the answer, even if published by a questionable source.
OR The downtown theatre community, for lack of a better term, is so small and insular and full of intrigue. Wouldn’t it be fun to poke fun? This Kippy certainly takes herself far too seriously… let the antics begin!
Collaborating Artists: Kippy Winston: Publisher, Editor-in-Chief; Shap Mulligan: Web Design, Creative Director About Kippy Winston: “Bonjour mes amis.” Kippy Winston’s web log began in 2008, but her peripatetic life started long ago. A citizen of the world, Kippy is a tastemaker and ardent supporter of the performing arts. Linguist and lover of culture, Kippy’s writings on art take on an art form all their own. Journalism meets hedonism in Kippy’s word play(s). [wink!] “Hey world. Here I am. Kippy Winston and loving life.”
Upcoming for The Radish: Look for The Radish at peak theatre seasons such as PRELUDE, the winter festivals (like Under the Radar/Coil/Other Forces) and of course Obie-award season. Updated electronically periodically, printed sporadically.
