SHAKESBURGH – “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crahn!”

Midnight Radio Season 5 opens with a nod to one of history’s greatest writers. What happens when you mix Ye Olde Bard with Ye Olde Yinzer? Much ado abaht nothing is what some jags would say, but we are not bahnd to please thee with our answer. Know this: A yinzer will be tamed, hauses will be divided, and a coward will die his last death.

It’s Shakesburgh. What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet as a crockpot full of sauerkraut pierogies. To go or not to go? That is the question. The answer lies dahntahn at Bricolage.

  • “The carefully crafted concoction of Pittsburghisms and Shakespearean puns will resonate with fans of the literature. Those less familiar with the thespian world of Shakespearean theater will still enjoy the show’s plethora of Pittsburgh-themed tag lines.”

    – Kymbo Slice, Nak You Out
  • “Voice artists Elena Alexandratos, Patrick Jordan, Sam Turich and Maggie Flynn Ryan bring the proper blend of ad hoc immediacy, dedication and cheekiness to their dual roles as radio artists and characters in the segments. Though busy supplying the show's many sound effects, Jeffrey Carpenter has short, funny cameos including that of the radio station's overworked intern”

    – Alice T. Carter, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
