“The Dougie” is on REP RADIO!

Today’s podcast features Doug Thompson, “The Dougie”. Inspired by the travels of “The Doctor”, Dougie gets off the couch and out of his own way. This one- man show is a musically fueled travel through space and time. Stay Tuned!



During the celebratory sold out premiere performance of DOUGIE WHO: The World Tour, a minor incident with a sonic screwdriver brings Dougie face to face with his past, resulting in a paradox that could destroy the fabric of space and time.

Through a whole lot of wibbly wobbly timey whimey stuff and the music of David Bowie, The Who, Neil Young and more, Dougie must guide his reluctant past into the living present, while battling head to head with the demons he thought he’d overcome.

Classic Ionesco comedy! A contagious hysteria is sweeping the city. One by one, residents grow horns, trample flowerbeds, decimate buildings—a citizenry gone gaga for conformity. Two friends struggle to maintain their identity and sanity. Who will turn next? From the team behind Kafka’s The Castle, Fringe Festival 2013.

South Philly Review – 8/28/2014 -


#Philadelphia #Podcast #Festival gets its geek on

The five-day event funneled South Philly geekdom into earbuds.

Darnelle Radford, a native of the 2100 block of Latona Street, also participated in the Podcast Fest as a voracious local theater podcaster. His journey started in ’04 when he founded his own Represented Theatre Company. Rep Radio came years later when he decided he wanted to help his fellow theater companies get the word out about their work. “An inside look at the plays and players,” as Radford put it.

“I wanted to create a vehicle that was designed to help smaller companies that didn’t have those marketing dollars. I’ve been inspired by so many creative artists – I wanted to find a way to promote new work. That’s where Represented came from,” he said.

They send out an average of 70-75 podcasts a year and time the release so that, when updates happen overnight on Monday morning, you’ve got a new podcast waiting for you, and the hope is that it sends you to box offices.

His time as an Apple employee in Ardmore showed him that smart phones are great tools to get one’s podcasts heard.

“At Apple, I see people who can’t keep their eyes off their gadget. By lunchtime they could buy tickets and by the time they get off of work they could be planning their evening, which is partly why we release our episodes on Mondays at 6 a.m. Their devices do their updates, and they get a new Rep Radio when they open it up.”

The Happiest Place on Earth?

On today’s podcast we are joined by the producer/performers Mary Monahan and Gina Lemoine and director Craig Baldwin of the FringeNYC production of “MAGIC KINGDOM”, not to be confused with the theme park that shall not be named during this episode. Stay Tuned!



When Cory gets a frantic and mysterious voicemail from his vacationing sister, he makes the trip to Orlando, Florida, to see what’s gone wrong. What he discovers is a sister seemingly gone insane, a young niece he must somehow look after, and a theme park full of irresistible temptations. MAGIC KINGDOM is a blend of autobiography, satire, and drama told through monologues, images, scenes, and music.
