528: The Radio Drama Episode

Jun 20, 2014
Our most ambitious live show ever! (get the video!) We pulled together a massive team of theater pros at the Brooklyn Academy of Music's Opera House – nearly 50 singers, actors, dancers and musicians. The result? Journalism turned into a Broadway musical (the cast album is here), into opera. Mike Birbiglia, Sasheer Zamata, Stephin Merritt, Josh Hamilton, Lindsay Mendez, Lin-Manuel Miranda and others.
This show was recorded onstage June 7, 2014. A video of the show, with an extra 50 minutes of stories, dances, visual gags and songs we could not fit into the hour-long radio program, is available here. We’re offering this Louis CK-style: it’s just five bucks to download or stream.
  • Joshuah Bearman tells a story that’s a sequel to his memorable episode about his mother and half-brother David. It’s done onstage as a play that’s structured like a radio documentary, with Josh Hamilton playing Joshuah, and James Ransone playing his brother. (17 minutes)
    Song:
    • "How Do You Slow This Thing Down", Stephin Merritt
