After a year of doom, gloom and Zoom, Radio Redux — Eugene’s hit retro radio theater company — gleefully opens its 2021-22 season with a five-star salute to one of the all-time great comedy teams: George Burns and Gracie Allen. Gracie’s addiction to detective radio programs takes a real-life turn when she convinces herself that sleuth “Sam Spade” nailed the wrong person. Determined to right this fictional wrong, she unleashes one crazy ploy after another. To add to the fun, Radio Redux, whose live shows evoke a 1940s radio program, dials up a second old-time radio favorite, the goofy Duffy’s Tavern and other comedic surprises.

Heavenly days! Finding a fast-moving flying saucer flat out flummoxes Fibber to fantastical fantasies in Radio Redux’s hilarious live re-creation of a classic show by radio’s famous comedy team, Fibber McGee and Molly. The popular Eugene audio theater company turns on the jets, and the jokes, to zoom Fibber’s excitement sky high after a silver UFO sets down in his yard, unloading a spaceship full of mayhem and mirth. Also on the production’s funny side is the Lux Radio Theater’s tittering telling of the screwball comedy The Awful Truth in which a warring couple discovers it was a mistake to get divorced. Or was it?

 

The Great Gatsby

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s great American novel electrifies the airwaves.

7:00 p.m. April 15 and 1:30 p.m. April 16 & 17.

Hult Center for the Performing Arts’ Soreng Theater in Eugene, OR.

 

The Jazz Age comes alive in Radio Redux’s original adaptation of the famous American author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s time-honored 1925 novel, The Great Gatsby,  that skewers the rich and the famous. Mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby — obsessed with reuniting with his former lover, Daisy Buchanan, now married and a mother — is the heart of this touching but tragic boy-meets-girl yarn, for which the hit Eugene audio theater company pulls out all the stops to authentically present this story as a 1940s radio show, with music, commercials and sound effects.  Paired with the all-time classic is the mind-bending magical realism comedy Mr. Sycamore. It’s a dandy, and we’re not barking up the wrong tree.
