BWW Review: CHANGING CHANNELS at The Fulton Theatre Photo BWW Review: CHANGING CHANNELS at The Fulton Theatre
by Rich Mehrenberg - Feb 6, 2022

Changing Channels, by John Reeger, is a story of 1950's television, the Red Scare, and the costs of standing your ground. Peter Bisgaier and Kate Fahrer star as Eddie Gilroy and Maggie Carlin, stars of 'For Pete's Sake' (the play's equivalent of The Honeymooners). When their show gets transferred to the CBS network, everyone involved is destined for fame and fortune, with one small hitch. Maggie is accused (inaccurately) of being a Communist sympathizer during the height of McCarthyism.
