News   Carson Higgins of "American Idol" Stars in Out of the Basement, Examining Sexual Assault and Rape Culture
 
Radd Theatre Co. presents Out of the Basement, described as "a journey down the rabbit-hole of masculinity and its consequences," through Oct. 26 at the American Theater for Actors.

Writer and artistic director Danny Coates-Finke describes the play as "a scary, sometimes funny, always exciting journey down the rabbit-hole of masculinity and its consequences… Tucker is a dude to envy. Bestselling author, lover of women, champion of bros, he walks confidently until a group of fans take his work too far."

Carson Higgins, who was seen on "American Idol" and in the national American Idiot, plays Tucker Waits.

According to press notes, "This production continues the national trend spotlighting sexual assault and rape culture… Out of the Basement is a much needed lens for sexual assault, it offers an emotional learning opportunity that doubles as a stunning artistic display. Show will conclude with a topical discussion and debrief."

Out of the Basement is directed by David Sicilliano and produced by Ann Beyersdorfer and Rachel Slotky.

Radd Theatre Co. is made up of recent Syracuse University graduates. For more information, visit RaddTheatreCo.com. The American Theater for Actors is located at 314 W. 54th Street.
