Radio Dramas brings a brand new collection of original Golden-Age radio dramas to the Black Box. With a crack radio troupe ensemble, audiences experience the reality of a 1940s era broadcast as actors scurry up to microphones at the last minute and jump in and out of character. Each broadcast has live sound effects and live music meant to heighten the drama. And there are vintage commercials and occasional great writing that create a surprising and vibrant evening.
