Plan-B Theatre Company: Radio Hour: Grimm Staff Pick

When: Wed., Oct. 15, 7 p.m. 2014
Price: $20
As is now something of a tradition, Plan-B Theatre Company opens its new season with something that's not exactly traditional theater, and not exactly a staged reading. But talented actors get to show off unique skills when the performance is meant primarily to be heard, rather than seen. This year's Radio Hour finds playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett adapting three classic fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm for a perfect dose of macabre Halloween-time entertainment. While "Little Snow-White" and "Rapunzel" may be familiar from Disney and other pop-culture adaptations, the production also presents the lesser-known tale "The Juniper Tree," with its own unique spin on the evil stepmother. Buy a ticket while they last for the one-night-only performance—to see the sound effects artists at work, for instance—or enjoy the KUER simulcast and imagine you're getting your drama the way so many Americans got it 70 years ago.
