Though undoubtedly one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Alfred Hitchcock wasn’t just a visual storyteller. His suspenseful, tense, meaningful and disturbing tales translate well to audio and stage, even without the film techniques that made him famous. A few of these stories — Hitchcock’s early films The Lodger, Sabotage and The 39 Steps — have been combined into a 1940s-style radio play, written by Joe Landry and performed this month by Florence’s Rialto Players. Rialto Players artistic director RC Wilkins says of the show: “[This] is a Readers Theater performance, a dramatic presentation of a written work in script form. ... The experience intends to recreate an old-time radio broadcast. The audience will experience the stories through the magic of sound: the actors’ voices, music and the foley, who creates the sound effects live onstage.” Moreover, audiences can enjoy this show in the recently renovated Rialto Theater, a historic building erected in 1923, which has been painstakingly restored to its original splendor.
