Greetings and Salutations, May 2017

We have to say goodbye to one of the members of the core Red Room Team, as she and her family embark on another chapter in their life’s adventure story.
Whitney Zahar –

Came on the Red Room scene at the Fifth Anniversary celebration at Huashan Creative Park where she and her family enjoyed all there was to enjoy. “SWEET!” And since then, they just kept coming back for more. “COOLNESS!” Whitney has done so much more than simply attending Stage Time and Wine, Juice, ASIDE & R4. She’s been an active participant. Moreover, she has established a library in the Red Room space at TAF and she’s been the editor of this eNewsletter. “AWESOME!”

Caring, sharing and caring some more, Whitney Zahar, powered by positive thinking, seems willing to help wherever she can. That’s Whitney: awesome, sweet coolness. She will be missed by everyone on the Red Room team.

Thank you Whitney!

Greetings and Salutations, dear Readers,
Ruth Giordano, here, doing what I can to keep the monthly e-newsletter publishing.

As this is the first e-news I have edited in many years, I suppose it’s appropriate to introduce myself to those who do not know me. Briefly and as relates to Red Room:

I’m the Director of the Red Room Radio Redux, (R4) dedicated to bringing literature to life in the theatre of your imagination. Modelled after the radio drama of the ‘30s and ‘40s, performing artists collectively read aloud selections from great literature which have been adapted for radio drama: music and sound effects enhance the listeners’ experience. Over the past 5+ years, we have collected recordings as well as live show dates performing such classics as Macbeth, Treasure Island, Dracula, Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and more.
