3829 N. Broadway

A trilogy of radio plays performed live before a studio audience, featuring the musical stylings of the Strawdog House Band. A fresh, contemporary approach to radio performance, featuring four world premieres:

Heavenly Potluck
by Lois Hobart
directed by Kyle Hamman
What would the buffet in heaven look like? What sort of dishes would all those dead celebrities bring? What’s the secret ingredient in those brownies? These and other theological questions are answered.

Cosmic Salvage Crew - Episode #1
by Alan Smithee
directed by Gregor Mortis
It’s the episode that started it all. Join the two newest crew members of the space garbage scow USSS Mater as they make a REAL mess of their first day on the job!

Radio Man
by Brett Neveu
directed by Stephen F. Murray
He was a radio fan, there was no denying it. But did he have what it takes to be a radio man? A strange bit of suspense from Chicago playwright Brett Neveu, author of American Dead and The Go.
