Press & Feedback

Anonymous. Live Radio Performance Features Classic Noir Drama., 14 Jan. 2010.

“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.”
