For over 10 years, the popular Eugene-based theater company has been reinvigorating a vintage artform that’s also new—radio storytelling. If you like podcasts, you’ll love Radio Redux, which takes the style of live storytelling done so well on the radio in the 1930s and ’40s and elevates it to a modern artform. Radio Redux’s success—capacity audiences, rave reviews, dynamic acting—proves that something old can be not only new again, but also extremely popular and engaging.
The critically acclaimed Eugene theater company is a national leader in the rare realm of radio storytelling that relies on vocal acting, live sound effects and musical snippets to invoke vivid pictures in the listener’s mind, where the most effective storytelling takes place. Radio Redux’s uncommon approach fires up the imaginations of its avid followers by infusing classic stories with an inventive yet authentic stage presence.
