    'Yinz'r Scrooged' puts Pittsburgh touch on Dickens' classic

    “Midnight Radio does mimic the format of a 1940s radio show, where script-holding actors perform live while simultaneously generating sound effects and delivering jokey commercials. Dixon and Turich's adaptation promises parody and comedy without minimizing Dickens' concerns about poverty, class and the public's indifference to the misery around”

    Stage review: Bricolage gives Pittsburgh twist to classic 'Christmas Carol'

    “This Midnight Radio adaptation by Tami Dixon, staged by Bricolage and directed by Sam Turich, purports to be a parody, but actually it’s pretty close to the real thing, albeit Pittsburgh-ized with local names, places, accents and jokes. Strip away those comic elaborations and you have a condensed but otherwise true-to-the-heart conversion story of the unhappy old miser, trapped in his self-defeating greed, along with a forceful version of Dickens’ denunciation of the ravages of the industrial revolution”

    Forget Zombies. This is about Mind Control

    "Currently in the middle of mounting George Orwell’s 1984 in Bricolage’s signature Midnight Radio format, the dystopian story was recently mirrored by a form of um, dystopian marketing – if there wasn’t such a thing before, there is, now! If taking to the streets with immersive theater is where it’s at, then why not do the same with promotions?"
