About the Show
Radiotheatre mounts its eighth annual horror fest featuring eight terrifying tales by H.P. Lovecraft, performed in repertory as dramatized radio shows.
All shows are performed in Radiotheatre's trademark style: a stripped-down, minimalist aesthetic that primarily uses audio to activate the viewer's imagination. Enjoy storytellers, an original orchestral score, and a plethora of sounds. The stories brought to life are 'The Call of Cthulhu,' 'The Rats in the Wall,' 'The Lurking Fear,' 'The Horror in the Museum,' 'The Music of Erich Zann,''The Beast in the Cave,' 'The Cats of Ulthar,' and 'The Unnameable.'
"Last night’s performance of two well-known Lovecraft tales was a disappointment...'The Horror at the Museum' started out entertainingly...Alas, the presentation soon blew up into an orgy of yelling...'The Call of Cthulhu' fared better...The presentation did convey something of Lovecraft’s extravagant imagination and effulgent language...It’s possible–likely, I’d say–other stories in the Lovecraft arsenal are making better evenings of Halloween-themed theater."
