"The Thin Man"
"The Thin Man" is a radio theater production featuring live on stage sound effect, live commercials and actors. The production is performed like the old fashioned radio programs from the 1930's.
The Gates Mills Players invite audiences to have an insider’s experience of a live radio broadcast with one of the most iconic and acclaimed of the classics, The Thin Man. The story follows married, crime-busting duo, Nick and Nora as they crack the case with glamour, wit, banter and plenty of martinis along the way. The comedic whodunit is the original in what eventually became a series of six comedy-mystery films. The original stars of the show both on-screen and in the radio play broadcast are screen legends, William Powell (Nick) and Myrna Loy (Nora). (The Gates Mills Players are proud to have one of their own members working on the play who is actually a relative of the great Powell!) The film version landed four Oscar Nominations, including Best Picture. To help translate it to today’s terms, the film currently holds a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes!
