For those not acquainted with The Flagpole Radio Café, it is an engaging live show created by Martin Blanco, Barbara Gaines and Jim Allyn.
It features music by the Radio Café Orchestra, a dynamic ensemble created for the show, and radio style comedy sketches by the hyperbolically named Flagpole Shakespeare Repertory Theatre. The Flagpole Radio Café is also recorded for broadcast on WPKN radio and Charter Community Television (dates and times announced on Facebook and the website). Each show features a musical guest artist such as Peter Yarrow, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Vanesse Thomas, Phil Bowler and Yale’s internationally acclaimed male choir The Whiffenpoofs.
There are six shows per season – usually on the Edmond Town Hall (45 Main Street) main stage in Newtown, CT. The Flagpole Radio Cafe and the logo are trademarks of the Flagpole Productions Foundation.
Hope to see you there!
