Gotham Radio Theatre Brings Back a Unique Theatre Experience
Cast of Blithe Spirit
Inspired by the Lux Radio Theatre of the 1930’s and 40’s, Gotham Radio Theatre brings you the experience of actors performing in vintage radio style! Masterpiece plays and screenplays are performed live, by an ensemble of actors and sound performers as if you were in a radio sound stage. You can experience these classic shows in a new format, where you ‘hear’ the shows as never before. Much like the radio hour serials of a bygone era, these classic theatre comedies, dramas and screenplays are performed in little more than 60 minutes, with live sound, music and actors playing multiple roles.
