3x3 Three Minutes, Three Questions Doug Robinson, 'Frankenstein' director

Courtesy Photo Peter Gaskin is Victor Frankenstein and Jo Hunt is Baroness Frankenstein in the Northwest Arkansas Audio Theater production of "Frankenstein" this weekend at ACO.

"Most people don't know what 'audio theater' is yet, even though the art is rooted in the familiar format of old-time radio drama," says Doug Robinson, director of this weekend's Northwest Arkansas Audio Theater production of "Frankenstein." "Our 'studio' audience will experience how talented voice acting, musicians and sound effects -- 'Foley' -- artists come together with great precision to create this immersive and imaginative experience. We've designed a format that brings this nostalgic art form to a modern audience, and we're acknowledging the live theatrical experience rather than one solely meant for the airwaves."
