The 1940’s Radio Hour coming to the Rose this holiday season

Set against the backdrop of World War II, The 1940’s Radio Hour is a play with music written by Walton Jones that follows a group of broadcast has-beens and wannabes as they put on the final live broadcast of the “Mutual Manhattan Variety Cavalcade.”

The musical’s structure mimics that of an actual radio broadcast, with backstage hands, musicians and performers straggling in, preparing for broadcast and, at the top of the hour, going live. Featuring over a dozen classic songs, including “Blue Moon,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” and “Old King Magic,” as well as comedy segments, radio plays, period commercials and prominent “On the Air” and “Applause” signs, which the audience is prompted to follow.

“Totally exhilarating hour of singing, dancing, and funny commercials.” – The New York Daily News
