Radio pioneered the theater of the mind in its formative days and continues to innovate unique audio experiences in this new century. Tonight the Paley Center looks back and beyond with experts in both realms. Author Tony Rudel will show how early radio redefined our sense of theatricality in several different genres. Writer/director Arthur Yorinks, artistic advisor for the New Theater of Sound--a creative initiative of WNYC's new multiplatform, multipurpose performance studio The Greene Space, opening April 28--will discuss how radio theater has evolved into the 21st century. He will also provide a sneak preview of the experimental work that will be presented in The Greene Space, including 'Sax From A Marriage,' an original audio play by Arthur Yorinks.
