Inside Studio Real: A choreopoetic sitcom
Created by Dasan Ahanu
This is the made up story, of creatives, hired to be cast members on a popular radio program, work together, and not complain about their paychecks. Find out what happens when people who dont know we are watching start getting real. Inside Studio Real is a wild ride full of music, dance, song, and poetry all delivered in dramatic episodic absurdity. Actors are beloved for how they play their role, but wait until you see how much of a character they are when they are being themselves. Each cast member called to bring the scripts they are presented with to life on the radio while filling the studio with their lives (and all that comes with it) during the process. Dont be scared if you see a bit of yourself on stage, its all part of the show.
