Just good theatre (with an “r-e”!)

I usually try to listen to podcasts but get distracted and never finish...but these audiodramas were so engrossing and just perfect all-around that I put it on and enjoyed every second.

Pro voice acting, classic stories, and their sound is actually *soothing*, (and the intro and outro are the very definition of delightful - theatre spelled “with an r - e”!”) Also love their original theme music.

This is especially lovely for October and spooky season!!! And accessible for everyone. I hope they keep it up year round with more stories.

I’m a fan of the actors/company founders from various regional theatre in NY, so I know whatever they’re planning, I’m here for it.
If you love live theatre you are certainly missing it right now and worried about whether it will come back - this is like theatre in your ear anytime, on demand.
I wish I could rate it more than five stars.
