(Tampa Bay, FL) — With reality TV all the rage, gone are the days of gathering around the radio and the family for a night of entertainment, but helping to bring that back is Joanie Sigal, Artistic Director of the East Coast Golden Age Theater in Tampa Bay. Sigal was recently featured on NBC Daytime, and plans on bringing the pulp-fiction stories from the 1930’s and 40’s written by L. Rob Hubbard to the entire East Coast.
The East Coast Golden Age Theater was modeled after the Golden Age Theater in Hollywood which started nine years ago. The Golden Age Theater has been reviewed by LA Weekly which called it “a unique, rarely seen form of family entertainment.” CBS Radio’s contributing Arts and Entertainment Critic, Todd David Schwartz, gave the shows “FOUR STARS (Highest Rating) [for] Southern California’s most refreshingly unique entertainment experience.”
Joanie’s NBC appearance was the first of several for the East Coast Golden Age Theater. Additionally, the East Coast Golden Age Theater (with its base in Clearwater) has taken their performances as far north as Bangor Maine, where the actors performed four live dramatic story readings – two in a public park setting and two at the Books-A-Million in Bangor Mall.
“These stories were written for the common man. It was a huge entertainment form in the ‘30s and we are bringing it back,” commented Joanie Sigal. “We are bringing these readings to adults and kids alike because everyone can relate to them and they love it. The stories are very entertaining and even inspire children to read more.”To view Joanie’s segment on NBC Daytime, view
