We're in a Depression again, so why not bring back radio plays!
The local NPR, WNYC is launching a new program in a new studio for live broadcast performance that will feature, among its many programming offerings, something they're calling "A New Theater of Sound."
One of the planned initiatives of The Greene Space is "A New Theater of Sound," for which The Greene Space "will collaborate with theatre groups to re-imagine audio theatre for the 21st century."So far, the programs are riffs on and/or revivals of radio classics (like "War of the Worlds"). But let's hope this leads to some new commissions for playwrights and gigs for actors!
