Audible Inc., the leading creator and provider of premium audio storytelling, announced today a new slate of four Audible Theater titles.
In addition to presenting thrilling live performances at the Minetta Lane Theatre in Greenwich Village, audio plays are a staple of Audible Theater’s programming, which continues to deliver the theater experience to millions of listeners around the world.
Audible Theater’s dynamic mix of live and audio theater productions has been praised as “trailblazing” (Variety), “illuminating” (Forbes), and “an exemplary use of the medium” (The Observer).
Audible Theater’s December 8 slate includes:
- Breathe, a new musical conceived by New York Times best-selling novelist Jodi Picoult and playwright Timothy Allen McDonald, explores five different households in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. These vignettes—directed by Emily Maltby, Joe Barros, Lorin Latarro, Zhailon Levingston, and Jeff Calhoun—that examine relationships, racial reckoning, and grief are brought to life by a cast featuring some of Broadway’s brightest talent, including Tony Award winners Matt Doyle, Kelli O’Hara, and Brian Stokes Mitchell and Tony Award nominee Denée Benton.
- Skyscraper Lullaby, written and directed by Olivier Award nominee James Fritz, is a thrilling psychological journey about two parents who process the disappearance of their toddler in vastly different ways, starring Stephanie Hsu, Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Arian Moayed.
- An emerging writer is invited to a canceled actor’s private island to escape mid-pandemic New York and faces a toxic working environment in Complicity Island by Nick Jones and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel. The satirical look at cancel culture features a cast including Ato Blankson-Wood, Mandi Masden, Richard Kind, and Alan Ruck.
- Jason Gotay’s uplifting musical narrative about self-acceptance, Where You’ll Find Me, which was recorded live at the Minetta Lane Theatre, Audible’s creative home for live performances in New York, and directed by Jack Cummings III.
“As Audible Theater grows and gains acclaim, we’re devoted to deliver full slates of audio plays that provide listeners with a breadth of options,” said Kate Navin, Head of Audible Theater. “This brilliant portfolio includes two moving titles that will entice musical theater fans: Breathe and Where You’ll Find Me. For a change of pace, the psychological thriller Skyscraper Lullaby and the irreverent Complicity Island round out this group that encompasses the riveting possibilities of audio theater.”
