Welcome to Gotham Radio Theatre!
Thanks to all who attended our 'Salute to Columbia Workshop' at Lincoln Center Library in the Bruno Walter Auditorium. We re-created two shows from the Columbia Workshop radio series, that aired on the Columbia Broadcasting System from 1936 to 1943, returning in 1946-47. Lincoln Center owns the music library of Bernard Herrman (composer of the music for Psycho and Citizen Kane) and early in his career he scored the music for the Columbia Workshop. We will be performing two programs, "Paul Revere" by Stephen Vincent Benet and "Someone Else" by Lucille Fletcher (who was Hermann's wife). It was a double feature, with live musicians playing Herrmann's score.
Gotham Radio Theatre Salutes the Work of Columbia Workshop & Bernard Herrmann!
On March 13th & 15th, Gotham Radio Theatre will present a very special show for the Lincoln Center Library in the beautiful Bruno Walter Auditorium. We will re-create two wonderful radio shows from The Columbia Workshop that were scored by Bernard Herrmann. We will have fan favorites, Stew Spencer (Victor Barbella), Louie Gugliano (Vince Trani), Irene Dahlia (Laura Leopard) and Otto Schmearcase (Bob Ader) on board along with an ORCHESTRA who will be playing Bernard Hermann's lovely original score during the performance. It's a special treat that is not to be missed! There will be two performances and they are FREE to the public! It's first come, first serve so come early!
