Gotham Radio Theatre


Gotham Radio Theatre re-creates two episodes of the radio series CBS Columbia Workshop live on stage, with live music, sound effects and more to underscore the action. The Columbia Workshop – which aired on the CBS radio network from 1936 – 1942 - was the perfect platform for experimenting with the new medium and helped to develop the use of sound effects and vocal impersonations. Bernard Herrmann, who composed the scores for Psycho and Citizen Kane, wrote and arranged music for several of these productions, and his work will be on display in this production.
