Radio Redux now has a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee, instead of a Saturday evening show. Shows are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays, 2 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
Pre-show Lecture Changes
Patrick Lucanio's lively pre-show lecture is now held inside the Soreng Theater—not the Jacobs Community Room, beginning an hour before curtain--not 45 minutes, as shown on your ticket (we’ve had to make a time adjustment, for logistical reasons), The lecture runs for a half-hour, giving you ample time visit the restrooms, the snack bars and the lobby exhibit before curtain … or consider staying in the theater to hear our wonderful jazz band's pre-show music.
