Live Theater Revisits Audio Theater

A lot of the company has worked, and continues to work, in live theater — though now isn’t as easy. We previously shared a message from the artistic director of the Guthrie Theater in Minnesota about theater’s enduring qualities.

Theaters are continuing to find ways to weather the closures and one way, as detailed on NPR, is to do plays as radio dramas.

The article references Orson Welles’ famous “War of the Worlds” broadcast from 1938, which we commemorated in 2018 with our own live performance of “War of the Worlds,” set in modern day and locally here in the Washington, DC area.

We hope this trend helps keep the lights on for many theaters — and perhaps introduces new listeners to the “Theater of the Mind.”

Listen Online! Through The Looking Glass – Episode 10: Two Shoemaker Tales

Stories: 

“The Elves and the Shoemaker”
by the Brothers Grimm, from their collection Kinder und Hausmärchen (1812)
translated by Edgar Taylor and Marian Edwardes (1823)
performed by Kim Davenport.

“The Cunning Shoemaker”
A tale from Sicily
Included in Andrew Lang’s collection The Pink Fairy Book (1897)
performed by Tom Kramer.

Crew:

Dialogue editing by Maurice Malde.

Sound effects editing and final mixing by William R. Coughlan.

Post-production services provided by Tohubohu Productions, LLC

Length: 22:44
Rated AD-G for general audiences. Contains nought but whimsy in the first tale (okay, that and some nakedness), but does contain some death in the second one… but it does happen to bad people and is quite in line with fairy tale karma.

Rated AD-G (Audio Drama 'G')
