The Fitzrovia Radio Hour

I recently excitedly headed out to see a performance of 1930s and 1940s classic radio pastiche The Fitzrovia Radio Hour, dolled up in my red lipstick especially. The show started off using classic radio shows from the period before writing its own to mock the attitudes of the time. The production we saw included a story about Nazi firemen, a mine disaster and a creature from some black lagoon… I think. I’m not sure, I could barely hear a thing and had only the vaguest of ideas as to what was happening. Apparently the company insisted on using its own sound system instead of the venue’s and even the sharpest of cut-glass accents failed to break through.

Still, the sound effects were cool and the costumes were fab.
