ALIVE RADIO, under “the baobab tree” in Ninth Square downtown New Haven presents Casablanqa, a comic spin on the classic chestnut. Intrigue, romance & double Dutch. A microcosm of misinformation. A whole world of preoccupation. Marx Brothers meets Monty Python. France meets Germany. America meets Norway. Morocco meets its’ Hollywood backdrop. Rick meets a blank Czech. Luis meets L’Amour. And Ilsa meets herself on the way in just before she passes out....
And it all takes place under the Baobab Tree, Friday the Eleventh of December at 8:00pm: 71 Orange Street, in beautiful Ninth Square downtown New Haven

CASABLANQA is the second in the series of ALIVE RADIO : a collaboration of Baobab Tree Studios , Connecticut Heritage Theater and local writer Steve Bellwood, to produce an on-going series of podcasts, You-Tube videos and “alive” (audience-invited) entertainments and documentations of the process. Similar approach will later be taken to other classic films, the works of Shakespeare and other canonized playwrights, including in March a “festival” spin on the Irish literary heritage. Our underlying aim is to gather a company of actors and an invested following to produce an original drama series set in New Haven, involving multiple characters and scenarios.
