In 1995, Captain Robert Lewis walks into a bar off Hollywood Boulevard, looking to escape his guilt, his life — and a tenacious television producer from “This is Your Life”. What he finds instead is a misterious woman, whose familiar face conjures visions of his dark past and a moment in time that irrevocably changed the world.
Inspired by true events, and laced with mystery and romance, Radiance delves into the emotional fallout of an unwitting war hero forever caught in the cross-hairs of history.
“Labyrinth is a theater collective known to the downtown crowd as a fertile source of offbeat plays and innovative performance techniques. (Mainstem auds were introduced to their ensemble style when “The Motherfucker With the Hat” transferred to Broadway in 2011.) “Radiance,” by Cusi Cram, upholds the company rep for eccentricity, with its surreal treatment of the 1945 U.S. mission that dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima.”
