We have created a noir comedy titled A View from the Bar, set in Sal’s Black Box Bar & Grill and at the Audience Choice Awards ceremony across the street, where you’ll hear the nominees announced, the winners declared, and the winning performers accept their awards.
So now, tune in to hear what happens when a frequent visitor to DC Theatre Scene hires actor/private eye Hashiell Dammit to get her the inside scoop on the Audience Choice Awards.
DC Theatre Scene proudly presents our first Radio Theatre production: A View from the Bar.
PS: Our play contains 16 tributes to DC shows or producers. Can you guess them? And no, the nominations and acceptance speeches don’t count.
Our thanks to the artists and DCTS staff for their performances, and to those fabulous folks at SoundIncentive. They each deserve the Golden Microphone Award. And for his brilliant sound direction, the Diamond Studded Headphone Award goes to SomeRandomSound.
