On the Radio – The Waterfront Playhouse and US1 Radio present Daphne
du Maurier’s “Rebecca,” the next play in

It is arguably Hitchcock’s greatest film
effort, replete with jolting, slap-in-the-face plot twists and gothic sets. Dark and
moody, it will star Jessica Miano Kruel
as “I,” Christopher Peterson as Mrs.
Danvers and Ross Pipkin as Maxim, costarring Gerri Louise Gates, David Black
and John McDonald. The live broadcast
will air at 8 p.m. on 104.1 FM and US1Radio.com, but spectators are invited to
the theater to watch the voice actors at
work. Tickets are $40 and are sold on a
first-come, first-served basis.

reflective of impressionism and Jimi’s of
surrealism, there is a cohesion, like two
languages saying the same thing, except
visually. The show runs through Aug. 15.

lieu of Key West’s traditional Pride Celebration, the Tropic Cinema’s virtual
