A well-reviewed hit at this year's Minnesota Fringe Festival, Now I See is an imaginative adaptation of a 1930s-era radio drama that's been freshly translated to the stage by a crack ensemble of eight, who play multiple roles and create live sound effects. Famed radio writer Arch Oboler, best known for his long-running horror series Lights Out, penned this powerful audio play. Originally titled The Story of Mr. Ginsburg, this Chameleon Theatre Circle production tells the story of an aspiring fight manager looking to land an up-and-coming boxing prodigy. Learn More

Fun event! This is one of my favorite plays- saw it at Theater In The Round a few years back, too. Hilarious script with very quirky characters- though it has its somber & moving moments, too. The actors and crew did a great job bringing this story to life!
Quotes & Highlights
The New York Times called the play “exceedingly whimsical and playfully wicked.”
This show is suggested for mature audiences.
