    Tremendous Script and Cast. Excellently portrayed the Thin Man Radio broadcast from the past.

    Creative and clever to do a play as a radio show; takes advantage of the nostalgia for “the good old days.” A good effort. We enjoyed the swinging singer, male vocalist, and guitarist performing the opening number ” Paper Moon.” A suggestion: since the play relies on both the visual and audio senses of the audience, perhaps you can add a performer (preferably a young girl or woman) walking across the stage with a smile and a sign indicating the next scene; and if possible, add a few more microphones for the players to use. (In the movies, scenes were separated by fades; on the radio, by pauses.)
