“Sure seems like Re-Imagined Radio is firing on all cylinders these days! I
enjoyed your production last night FAR more than the classic film itself,
which I happened to catch recently. The acting was simply tremendous. The
tough-guy voice of Sam Space and the gushy voice of the many-named femme
fatale—and Joel Cairo, and the Fat Man, and the police—they were
all just right. Thanks for a great evening. I brought my mom.”
