"...There are useful lessons to learn from classical audio theater. Yet, we cannot make old time radio drama anymore and expect to engage audiences in the 21st century. We must experiment with new tools, new theatrical devices, new ways of looking at narrative to bring this new theater of sound to the fore. If radio drama arose from an early 20th century technology, then A New Theater of Sound should utilize 21st century invention. This new theater of sound must tell stories, for in the end storytelling is at the heart of theater. And it must compel an audience to think and to feel something. But remembersound is at the heart of this theater . . . We must explore and define the boundaries and rules of this medium, and then be courageous in hammering at those boundaries and breaking those rules to create a vital and new theatrical horizon."
