The Whiskey Radio Hour Closing (Theater and Galleries) The Short List (Theater)

When: Thursdays. Continues through Feb. 14 2013

Featuring snacks for the audience, a Foley artist, and musical accompaniment on guitar and banjo, Whiskey Rebellion's nod to old-fashioned radio dramas is warm, quaint, and charming. But nostalgia isn't the main attraction here. That would be the performances by Isaac Samuelson, Frederick Ford Beckley, and Ellenor Riley-Condit in the evening's three untitled tales. Written by Jessica Wright Buha, they chronicle a western bandit's pursuit of a belle, a woman coming to terms with loss, and a couple slowly moving toward love. The one about the couple shows the most promise: take away the radio gimmick, and it'd still hold up. Presented as part of Rhinofest. —Dan Jakes
