RADIOTHEATRE Now in it's 7th Season Radiotheatre combines the artistry created during the Golden years of Radio when Sound was king and Story Telling, along with great voices, music and sound effects…as well as, the individual imaginations of its audiences…were the primary ingredients used to provide a memorable, live, theatrical experience. Of course, we do like to add some 21st Century touches…such as cinematic scripts, fully scored orchestral sound tracks which you won't hear anywhere else, a plethora of aural effects and, sometimes, a few visuals, too…creating a unique production with non-traditional, modern, innovative stage presentation!

Praise for RadioTheatre's last NYC production, H.G.Wells' THE TIME MACHINE currently on tour:

"Of all the treasures of NYC's contemporary avant garde theatre scene, it is difficult to find a performance art company as innovative, yet, traditional as Radiotheatre..." TOTAL Theatre Magazine, London

"Attention grabbing theatre! Critics Pick!" Backstage

"For those of you who love your story telling turned up to 11...this is for you!"

"Incredible science fiction...very involving...the acting pulls you right in!" Aisle Say

"In short, if you love Wells, science fiction and horror genres, this dramatization will prove enjoyable so program your time machines and blast off for an evening!" OffOffOnline

"A final key element in this show's success is the evocative musical score by Radiotheatre. Much more than incidental music, it works like a top-notch movie score, alternately cradling and illuminating the action. It's just perfect." StageMage

COMING FALL 2011: THE H.P. LOVECRAFT FESTIVAL continues! In an unprecedented event in live theatre...Dan Bianchi has adapted and scored for the stage 50 of Lovecraft's greatest literary works and for the next few seasons, Radiotheatre is proud to present them in a series of world premieres.
