(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."
