Metro Detroit: Newsmakers March 20, 2011




Detroit Free Press:

Detroit jazz club Cliff Bell's, which already offers patrons a genuine art deco-era dining and nightclub experience, is delving deeper into those thrilling days of yesteryear. "WTYN Detroit Radio," premiering Monday, is a stage play that recalls the heyday of serialized radio dramas like "The Lone Ranger" and "The Green Hornet," both of which originated in Detroit. It's set at a small-time radio station that produces a detective drama titled "The City Desk." The show's actors and producers work for a station owner who has ties to organized crime.

"WTYN" is set in Detroit in 1936, and the play makes references to everything from Vernor's and Belle Isle to rival radio station WXYZ. A dozen actors will don Depression-era costumes, but the set will be intentionally spartan... Nostalgic stage play 'WTYN Detroit Radio' showcases serialized dramas (Sun, 3/20)
