Echoes of Radio WHT this summer and two one-night-only performances next year

By Russ Bickerstaff
    Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre continues to produce some really fun retro-comedy programs. Actors play actors playing characters in the golden age of radio. It's fun stuff. Not too long ago, the group, which had been largely a live performance affair, had teamed-up with 91.7 WMSE for a series of live performances. Those live performances continue this summer . . . as recorded from earlier perfor...

Garlic may not have the glamorous cachet of strawberries or chocolate, both of which have inspired their own southeastern Wisconsin festivals, but it has its share of fanatics, which makes the food a worthy if eccentric theme for Braise's first street...

A perfectly talented solo artist in her own right, Milwaukee's Stacian (aka Dania Luck) has been expanding as of late. You can still periodically find her on stage, coaxing serenely strange sounds...

By Russ Bickerstaff
The Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre brings its unique brand of live/old timey radio drama comedy to a couple of different venues this month. February 6th at 8:30 am, 91.7 WMSE  welcomes the group to the FM airwaves as a part of its Frontier Radio Theatre.

(Exactly)

By Russ Bickerstaff
It goes without saying that the NBC drama The Event and the upcoming mega-budget action film Skyline come from a long-line of similar stories that stretch back a great many years. Possibly pre-dating the earliest science fiction, the alien invasion story is one that is deeply buried in human consciousness. One of the earliest modern treatments of the theme, H.G.

More Over-The Air Performances Slated for Wisconsin Hybrid Theatre

By Russ Bickerstaff

It isn’t radio, but it’s not really a fully staged theatrical comedy in  the traditional sense, e...
