Showcasing the very best in new Audio Drama

The Crimson Shadow Brings the Past to Life

devinDWhat is it about old time radio that inspires so much stage work? I’ve argued for some time now the old time radio takes its beats and passion from live theatre, while modern audio drama has its heart from the cinema.

Gina Gambony’s article from appears to agree:

Devin DiMattia is a local actor and founding member of the performance group, Pineapple Shaped Lamps (PSL).  While he’s been comfortable writing skits and short scripts for stage performance, DiMattia has taken the leap to create a full play, one that reflects his appreciation of 20th century radio drama.  DiMattia’s The Continuing Adventures of the Crimson Shadow opened last weekend at The Red Barn Studio Theatre and runs Thursdays-Sundays through May 1st.

Check out the show times with Thursdays to Saturdays at 7:30 PM, and Sundays at 3 PM. Long fight the Crimson Shadow!
