These are not old-time radio shows but incredible simulations! Created by veteran audio theater producer Joe Bevilacqua, these humorious half-hours take off on such classic old time radio shows as The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, The Green Hornet, War of the Worlds, Suspense and The Jack Benny Program.
The Bear, the classic one-act play by Anton Chekhov, produced, directed and adapted by Joe Bevilacqua. Written in 1900, The Bear is one of the great works of Anton Chekhov, about the strange beginnings of love between the recently widowed Mrs. Popov and Grigory Stepanovich Smirnov. The title The Bear comes in Russian the word for "bear" which has two meanings: an animal or a rather rude, clumsy, awkward man. The play is alternately titled The Boor.
"Nice Chekhov Funny Short Play"
Though best known for The Red Badge of Courage, his classic novel of men at war, in his tragically brief life and career, Stephen Crane produced a wealth of stories that stand among the most acclaimed and enduring in the history of American fiction. This adaptation of Crane's classic short story "The Pace of Youth" was produced with wonderful sound effects and music by veteran radio-theater producer Joe Bevilacqua, who is joined in the fine cast by William Melillo, Cathi Tully, Peter Cummings, and Leslie Spital.
