We are pleased to announce a special Holiday presentation of The Blue Carbuncle produced by the Quicksilver Radio Theater. Garritan Personal Orchestra is used almost exclusively in the accompanying background music in this radio productions.
This one-hour radio play will premiere on Sunday, December 28, 2003 at 7p.m., on Max Schmid\'s The Golden Age of Radio - broadcast in the New York City area on WBAI-99.5 FM, and simultaneously Webcast worldwide at www.2600.com.
Adapted by Producer Craig Wichman, this radio drama was authorized by The Estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. One of the author\'s rare comic tales, and the only one set during Yuletide, the mystery involves Holmes and Watson with several Dickensian Londoners, a dusty hat, a famous gem, - and a goose! As an added treat, Quicksilver will also present the rarely produced short play by famed Holmes portrayer William Gillette, \"The Painful Predicament of Sherlock Holmes\". This play also features GPO in the background. Original music is by Frank Spitznagel, Recording Engineer, Chip Fabrizi (at P.P.I. Recording); and Editor, Dominick Barbera (at SoundtrackNY.) The Director is Jay Stern.
If you get a chance to listen, I\'m sure you will enjoy these presentations!
