The NSA whistleblower makes his Off-Broadway debut in a most unexpected way...

Edward Snowden Edward Snowden | By Laura Poitras/Praxis Films

To some, he's a hero, to others, he's a traitor, but there's one thing he is that we can all agree on... Edward Snowden is the Public Theater's latest summer star!

"Privacy", a new play by James Graham and Josie Rourke features the NSA whistleblower in prerecorded video footage alongside the almost-as-famous actor Daniel Radcliffe, speaking on privacy and performing Shakespeare passages.

The play is inspired by Snowden's own life story, and features an ensemble cast playing the roles of various real-life journalists and tech influencers.

Already in previews, "Privacy" has sold out its entire run, and earned an incredible ShowScore of 89! It opens at The Public on July 18th.
