What I liked

The entire cast for this show is pitch-perfect awesomeness! They devour the material with glee and you cannot resist getting caught up in the tales.

Using scripts from two actual radio dramas titled “Lights Out” and The Hermit’s Cave” the show takes on the charm of that style of storytelling – a bit obvious at times but smartly letting the audience use its imagination to fill in the deeds of the characters caught in the tales ahead.

What I didn't like

The show works on all levels!

My overall impression

Pure joy and whimsical fun from start to finish! This piece bills itself as “an evening of vintage thrills and chills.” It delivers.

The chills are mild but sincere as the audience is treated to the “live” radio broadcast of two short thrillers. There is a Foley person making sound effects on-the-go and playing live music as needed to enhance the creepiness of the whole affair. This show had me grinning goofily for the entire time. It’s totally charming.
