It’s time for the Armchair/Shotgun Old-Timey Radio Hour (Or rather, Forty-Five Minutes…)! This time for Brooklyn Lit Crawl’s night of amazing literary activities, we’ll be delving into the The Lives of Harry Lime–the fabulous stories of the immortal character originally created in the motion picture, The Third Man. The episode? Pleasure Before Business! Because who doesn’t love THAT. So come enjoy an evening of politically incorrect fun (hey, it was the time period!) with us at 61 Local, starting at 7:15PM.
Our actors? Some of our talent from previous issues of Armchair/Shotgun of course!
