ArtsBuzz: Theater critics launch Internet radio show

Two on the Aisle (1927), by Edward Hopper.

So what are you doing on Mondays at 2 p.m.?

Starting this week, that's when Palm Beach ArtsPaper theater and film critic Hap Erstein and Sun-Sentinel theater contributor and blogger Bill Hirschmann launch an Internet radio and video show called Aisle Say, a freewheeling, point-counterpoint hour on theater topics, both South Florida-based and national.

Topic A on this week’s inaugural show is the 63rd annual Tony Awards -- what worked and what didn’t on the telecast, which winners were deserved and who got robbed, plus a few write-in dubious achievement awards.

In addition, Hap and Bill will offer their choices for a night out at the theater from among the local shows currently running. And they will take phone calls and questions from listeners via Facebook.

Tune in by surfing to www.wrpbradio.com, the home page of Radio Palm Beach, where the audio and streaming video of Aisle Say will be available. See why Erstein and Hirschmann have great faces for radio.
