Clever, Masterful, Refreshing, Entertaining, Radiotheater very well told

See it if you want a fun evening of short stories very well told, with animated readers, great sounds, lighting, and background in a perfect venue.

Don't see it if can't sit for 90 minutes on hard pews; can't think of any other reason not to see this. Read more

Entertaining

See it if you would love being read to in the dark in a grand historic church. The setting is probably the coolest aspect.

Don't see it if you expect a genuinely frightening evening. or want visuals - it's almost entirely voices with a bit of lighting.

"Inspired by old-time radio shows and the pulp fiction era, Radiotheatre reinvents storytelling using lighting, sound, special effects, and a cast of enthused storytellers...If you’re a fan of Gothic horror, it’s a show you won’t want to miss...These chilling tales are narrated and acted by a dynamic group of storytellers...I for one was completely enthralled by the show, which is a tribute both to the original authors and to the festival’s cast and creative team."
