Further details

In the Golden Age of Radio, luminaries of American Comedy–e.g. Lucille Ball, Eve Arden, Marie Wilson–created characters that entertained millions, and, developed programming models that were the blueprint of modern entertainment.

In programs like, “My Favorite Husband“, “Our Miss Brooks” and “My Friend Irma“, pioneers such as Lucy, Eve and Marie, took center stage in a new medium and brought characters to life that grew and developed over time and across radio, TV & film.

On Sat., Feb. 242018, two of today’s brightest Comediennes, Amy Miller and Emma Arnold, will use their comic talents to bring those hilarious programs to life in full-cast performances of comic masterpieces from radio’s Golden Age.

Erickson Theater off Broadway

WELCOME TO REPS

Join us in sharing the fun as we seek to preserve and protect the classic shows of the past, and to seek the best of audio entertainment today ! If you do remember the golden age of radio, you may recall a time when the room may have been illuminated only by the light of the radio dial and coming from the loudspeaker a good mystery with Sherlock Holmes or a great radio spine-tingling thriller with the likes of the ever popular radio classics Escape and Suspense!  Hear great stories like The Time Machine or The Invisible Man by HG Wells, or Three Skeleton Key – where three men are trapped in a lighthouse surrounded by thousands of rats who are trying to claw their way in!  If this is too intense for you, you may prefer the legendary comedians who had the most popular shows on radio and you can hear their hilarious shows today — Jack Benny, Fred Allen, Edgar Bergen,  Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello and others.
Listen in and explore a whole new world of audio entertainment.
