Listening Room, The: Troublesome Gap
audio theatre really got a workout in The Listening Room: Troublesome Gap, by audible Group founding members Matthew Nielson, Susan Lynskey and James Konicek: Right off, audience members were told to close their eyes. (I couldn't resist sneaking a peek, out of both personal and reporter's curiosity, and was surprised to find about 95% of the roomful of people with their eyes firmly shut.) Taking us back to the golden days of radio, a male voice with a Western drawl narrated the tale, which had elements of both classic Western drama and humor with a few sly contemporary references slipped in. It was accompanied by excellent sound effects that recalled not just radio, but the genre films that made millions for Hollywood for over half a century. The willingness of so many to play along with the imposed protocol (which could so easily have been breached), the smiles on their faces as they listened, and the stampede of applause that greeted the invisible speakers, writers and technicians at the show's end was proof, if any were needed, that audio theatre is not a forgotten relic of the past.
