Welcome To Night Vale
Turn on your radio and hide.
Called “a geeky cultural gem” by CBC, WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE is a twice-monthly podcast in the style of community updates for the small desert town of Night Vale, featuring local weather, news, announcements from the Sheriff’s Secret Police, mysterious lights in the night sky, dark hooded figures with unknowable powers, and cultural events. Or, as The New York Times put it, “With its uncanny blend of the macabre and the mundane, the news out of Night Vale sounds like what might occur if Stephen King or David Lynch was a guest producer at your local public radio station.”
Bringing the podcast to life on Tampa Theatre’s historic stage, the WELCOME TO NIGHT VALE tour is written by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor and narrated by Cecil Baldwin, with live music by Disparition, and special musical guest Erin McKeown. “Our live show is a completely stand-alone story that can be enjoyed by long-time fans and newcomers alike,” the Night Vale folks say.
