Brownstone Theater - Old Time Radio
Vintage Radio: Drama

Brownstone Theater

Brownstone Theater aired for 30 minutes each Wednesday between February-September, 1945 on Mutual Broadcasting. Billed as "a theater of memories -- your memories, perhaps," It featured bright presentations of famous Broadway and off-Broadway plays. Because of the popularity of the genre, many well-known radio and theater actors and actresses were eager to appear in the productions.

The show's opening created an illusion for listeners to imagine themselves walking up theater aisles, settling into their seats, the curtain rising, and the actors appearing on stage. Performances included such classics as Prisoner of Zenda, The Man Without a Country, and Cyrano de Bergerac.

Brownstone Theater was broadcast from New York City's WOR studio, which had leased The Longacre Theater, a venue previously known for several off-Broadway productions.
