A Nostalgiaspoof Review of the Golden Age of Radio
Conceived & Written by Peter Palame
Music by Neil Fishman
Lyrics by Harvey Edelman
If you have a 100 to 500 seat house, dinner theater, or cabaret, this is the show for you. The audience is part of a radio studio broadcast audience in this inventive, hilarious salute to 1940’s radio, complete with all original songs, serials, and even commercials, written in forties style with an off-the-wall modern perspective. This show, which had a successful New York Off-Broadway cabaret run, will have your audiences requesting an encore for years to come.
A BOLD, INVENTIVE AND OFTEN HYSTERICALLY FUNNY NEW MUSICAL…MAY BE THE MOST CLEVER PLAY OF THE YEAR… A TERRIFIC SHOW!
The New York Daily News
ON THE AIR OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH TO BRING BACK RADIO!
The Newark Star Ledger
ON THE AIR IS FRESH AND ORIGINAL FROM TOP TO BOTTOM… FISHMAN AND EDELMAN HAVE DEVISED SONGS OVER WHICH COMO, CROSBY, AND SINATRA WOULD HAVE FOUGHT TOOTH AND NAIL 40 YEARS AGO.
The Week Ahead
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A NOSTALGIA BUFF TO FALL IN LOVE WITH ON THE AIR. ON THE AIR CAN BE ENJOYED BY THE WHOLE FAMILY!
