New York City
Horse Trade Theater Group is proud to present RadioTheatre and their original, live, audio-theatre adaptation by Dan Bianchi of Meet John Doe, Frank Capra’s 1940 Oscar nominated classic, which starred Gary Cooper and Barbara Stanwyck. The story takes place in NYC at Christmas time during the Depression, when America’s economy is at an all-time low. In order to sell papers, a reporter’s fraudulent story turns a tramp into a national hero and makes him a pawn of wealthy businessmen who wish to create a third political party and take over the country. Meet John Doe will be performed complete with a great cast of storytellers, an original orchestral score and a plethora of sound effects.
