Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society: Inspired by…The Shadow at Crooners

March 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Dinner and cocktail seating and service begins 1 hour before showtimes.

Radio Drama

Two audio plays inspired by the mysterious crimefighter known as The Shadow. “The Mystery of the Giant Brain” from The Avenger: A vintage rip-off of the Shadow from the 1940s. This one has it all: mad science, telepathy, robots, and, of course, a giant brain! “The Silence of Death” from Mr. and Mrs. Nighthawk: An original play by Joshua English Scrimshaw, mixing the pulp heroics of The Shadow with the hardboiled romance of The Thin Man.

The Mysterious Old Radio Listening Society performed their first staged old-time radio recreation in 2016 at the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater in Minneapolis. Since then, they have appeared at the Minnesota Fringe Festival, Daleko Arts in New Prague, and the Wabasha Street Caves in Saint Paul. Their recreations were also featured monthly from 2017 to 2019 at the James J. Hill Center and from 2020 to 2022 at Park Square Theater in Saint Paul. Currently, the MORLS performs regularly at both the Bryant-Lake Bowl Theater and Crooners Supper Club.

“Using their voices to paint a picture so vivid that if you close your eyes you can see the action in your mind’s eye.”–Stages of Minnesota
