Clever, Resonant, Edgy, Melodramatic

See it if you enjoy scary stories dramatically told. Radiotheater specializes in effective dramatic readings with sound effects, music and lighting.

Don't see it if you are expecting a full theatrical production. Of the 5 stories 4 lack satisfying conclusions although all are well told.

Theatre is Easy
December 17th, 2013
For a previous production

"A unique holiday show that resurrects the art of live Christmas storytelling...Their approach utilizes storytelling, enhanced by a musical score, sound effects, and minimal visuals...I would have enjoyed more of the Dickens since those phantoms are meant to truly terrify...Although I was expecting more chills with the spectral visitors, it was a novel way to experience storytelling and old fashioned entertainment."

For a previous production

"Radiotheatre features fine actors who have clearly studied the style: acting with only their voices, facial expressions, a few hand gestures at most, and supported only by shafts of light that let us see their faces, with meticulously arranged and timed music and sound effects to stretch and heighten the tension. And tension is what drives this particular set of tales...It’s radio acting at its lush best: thrillingly, terrifyingly overblown while at the same time precisely calibrated."
