"It’s doubtful any show could capture H.P. Lovecraft's spooky enigmatic quality better than Radiotheatre, which mounts six Lovecraft stories performed by four actors speaking into microphones in solitary spotlights. Creepy music, a few light cues and a burst of smoke are the only design. This chilling production concentrates attention on the voice, the words and, most importantly, the darkness. Like so many Lovecraft tales, this story takes place in blackness." JASON ZINOMAN, INTELLIGENT LIFE MAGAZINE

THE LIGHTS OUT CLUB in
Early on, THE LIGHTS OUT CLUB were so secretive, they wore hoods during the initiation of a new member. If the initiate's story failed to terrify the club, he'd be dismissed without knowing the membership.
