A NEW IRISH DRAMA
On Monday evening, February 26th, Bill Dudley’s panoramic new play, The Wearing of the Green, will be recorded live for radio by Stage Shadows, Inc. “Radio Like You’ve Never Seen It!”™ at the Museum of Television & Radio in midtown Manhattan. The hour-long production, with live sound effects and original music, presents Part I of the life and times of Tammany Hall overlord Patrick Mulbaney, from his first return to Ireland in 1922 after 67 years. The first three segments follow him backwards in time to the beginnings of his brutal rise to power.
Robert Kilbridge directs the cast of Irish and American actors. World Music Percussionist Rex Benincasa designs and performs live sound effects and music. Rebecca Weiner composes and plays the acoustic violin. Liz Jennings is the Sound Designer.
Performances begin sharply at 7PM in the MT&R’s Mark Goodson Theatre, 25 West 52nd Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues) in New York City. This special performance is for an invited audience and space is limited. An adjacent studio with a large screen is being provided for overflow audience. The reservation number is (212) 604-4612. Reservations will be accepted only through Friday, February 23rd.
Stage Shadows continues its fourth season of recording live at the Museum of Television & Radio with this February 26th production, adding one more play to the 40 so far produced, of which 36 are audio theatre premières. The productions air subsequently on NYC’s “Classic Radio”, WFUV (90.7FM), on Sunday evenings at 12 Midnight and simultaneously on the station’s website. Link through www.stageshadows.com.
