    Actors Debra Winger and Arliss Howard join writer and director Arthur Yorinks
    (founder of The Night Kitchen Radio Theater) in announcing the launching of
    'The Kennedy Center Presents The Night Kitchen Radio Theater Live on XM
    Satellite Radio'


    NEW YORK, Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kennedy Center, the nation's premier
    cultural center, and The Night Kitchen Radio Theater, a new theater company
    devoted to creating and producing theatrical works for the radio, have joined
    forces to launch a new, ongoing dramatic radio series recorded and broadcast
    on XM Satellite Radio. The series is called "The Kennedy Center Presents The
    Night Kitchen Radio Theater Live on XM Satellite Radio."
    Actress Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment, An Officer and a Gentleman) and
    her husband, actor Arliss Howard (Full Metal Jacket, Amistad) who will perform
    in one of the first season's radio plays, joined Arthur Yorinks (founder and
    artistic director of The Night Kitchen Radio Theater) in making the
    announcement.
    Every month, beginning on December 21, The Night Kitchen Radio Theater
    will perform in front of a live audience a full-length radio play with music
    and sound effects based on the best of literature. XM will record the
    performance and will broadcast it on their Sonic Theater channel and their
    family channel. It will also be available to public radio stations around the
    country.
    The program will be an hour long and include two brief segments, one
    (Listen Up!) hosted by noted critic Leonard Marcus, and the other (Hear and
    Now) hosted by Nora Gross of Common Cents New York, the country's largest
    youth philanthropic project.
    The series' other collaborator is Reading Is Fundamental, the nation's
    oldest literacy organization, who will develop, in conjunction with The Night
    Kitchen Radio Theater, a unique program reaching across the country to
    encourage reading.
    "We are creating multi-tasking zombies-children and adults that can do
    five things at once, but can't seem to sit still and simply listen," said Mr.
    Yorinks. "It's time to bring back theater on the radio on a consistent and
    national basis."
