About the Company:
Midnight Radio Show is a multi-disciplinary collective based in Brooklyn. Using hand-made shadow puppets, live performance, video content, and an actual radio show, they broadcast real magical love to children of all ages.
MRS is headed up by Charlotte Lily Gaspard, the artistic director, singer, narrator, and bona fide fairy princess. Resident composers Ezra Bloom, Sabrina Chap, Jessie Davis, and Doc Frost craft original scores and songs for the shadow puppet stories, live cabarets, and recordings. The characters are brought to life by a rotating cast of dancers, performers and poets.
The group challenges conventional divisions between band, theater troupe, and producing company. In a world where artists are often pressured to narrow their vision to hit success, MRS has received accolades and inspired many with their bold creativity. The group has been written about in the NY Times, The Brooklyn Paper, and Faerie Magazine, and has received grants from the Brooklyn Arts Council and New York Restoration Project to provide free shadow puppet theater to children in public gardens throughout the city.
In addition to the Twilight in the Garden series, the group produces original cabarets twice a year, featuring belly-dancers, spoken word artists, and huge three-dimensional puppets to augment the intergalactic fairy tales conveyed on the shadow puppet screen. They also stream a program on Radio Free Brooklyn, where you can follow the storyline that ties all their content together whatever the medium. And if that’s not enough, Midnight Radio Show is also a band, blending folk, jazz, and soul.
