Dance, Improv, Nudity, Absurdity: Har Mar Superstar wows Underground Arts

Har Mar Superstar | photo by Ben Wong for WXPN | brotherlylost.com

With such an intoxicating voice, literally and figuratively, and lyrics to swoon the clothes off of any concert-goer (although it’s usually himself who winds up stripping), Har Mar Superstar brought an unforgettable performance to Philly this past Monday.
