Publication Date: 9/19/2007
There′s a new theater in the air. Chatterbox Theater (chatterboxtheater.org) launched online Sept. 14. The creation of Bob Arnold ′02, Chatterbox offers free downloads of fully soundscaped audio productions—each some 20-30 minutes in length—performed by Arnold and a cast of several other Rhodes alumni.
Some of the productions are adaptations of existing works (Melville, Kafka, Roman myths) and some are originals. The troupe records the shows live, using manual sound effects and live music. The production style mirrors the way radio shows were created back in the golden era of radio.
