Alfred Hitchcock lovers are in for a treat in the form of a festival in which some of the master’s greatest movies will be presented live in the form of radio adaptations presented Dec. 19 to Dec. 30 in New York City.
Radiotheatre is presenting seven, suspense-filled shows (well, unless you know the movies particularly well) in the 190-year-old, candlelit St. John’s Sanctuary, 81 Christopher St. in Greenwich Village.
The 1940s-style radio adaptations of famous films originally directed by the Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, are complete with original orchestral scores, storytellers and sound effects.
The shows, presented in repertory, are adaptations of many of Hitchcock’s most famous and enduring classics. For schedule, tickets for $24 and additional information, go to www.radiotheatrenyc.com.
