Retro Fun! Old-Time Radio Drama To Be Performed Live At Landmark

Retro Fun! Old-Time Radio Drama To Be Performed Live At Landmark

Landmark Radio Theater will present Stage Door, an adaptation of the classic 1937 film, on Sunday, Sept. 30, at 6 p.m. at the Landmark on Main Street in Port Washington, N.Y. The show will be presented as a radio play with music and sound effects, performed before a live audience.

Building on the success of last year's inaugural performance, Landmark Radio Theater's cast of talented community and professional performers will bring the comedy-drama, Stage Door, to life on the Jeanne Rimsky Theater stage, re-enacting a coast-to-coast radio broadcast from 1939, complete with period commercials and songs. The show will also be recorded for later broadcast.

"Stage Door was a natural choice this year," said Pat Lyons, the show's director. "The characters face challenges that will resonate strongly with our audience, and the script is chock-full of engaging characters and all the wit, wisecracks and snappy dialogue that Hollywood used to do so well."

Though Stage Door is set in a bygone era, its themes are as current as today's headlines. It tells the story of a group of young women striving to make it in show business, an industry in the grip of powerful men. With dreams of stardom, each hopeful actress travels down a different road in search of success.

Come and join the retro fun! Tickets are $10, on sale now at the Landmark Box Office, 516-767-6444, or online at Stage Door is a production of the Landmark on Main Street and Expressive Elocution.
