NAKED ANGELS Naked Radio featured in The Wall Street Journal

“The Naked Angels theatre company, celebrating its 25th year of producing AUDACIOUSLY ORIGINAL work is on a roll this year.”

Roma Torre, NY-1 News





Naked Radio is a program that brings the work of NAKED ANGELS from the stage to the digital airwaves. The Naked Angels Writers Room meets every week, creating original content in podcast, video, and blog form. The content is available at nakedangels.com/nakedradio. 


Naked Radio is profiled in today’s Wall Street Journal:


Getting Naked on the Airwaves

by Pia Catton


Radio plays may belong to the past, but they’re currently shaping the future of the nonprofit theater company Naked Angels.


Founded in 1986, Naked Angels—which takes its name from John Tytell’s book about the Beat generation—is a Chelsea-based operation that produces about three stage productions a year. The company can boast names like Marisa Tomei, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kenneth Lonergan as longtime members, but in recent years its connection to the emerging generation of writers and performers needed some cultivation.


Now, a group of 15 theater types in their late 20s is meeting every week at the Naked Angels offices on Seventh Avenue to write and rehearse weekly theatrical offerings in the style of short radio plays. The scripts are recorded and posted as Naked Radio podcasts at nakedangels.com.


“We use Naked Radio as an incubator, and we invite playwrights that we’re interested in,” said Naked Angels associate artistic director Andy Donald, who formed the adjunct group in 2009.






SINCE 1986, NAKED ANGELS has been committed to strengthening a community of artists through the development and production of provocative new work. The company has played a role in developing critically acclaimed new plays including The Substance of Fire, Side Man, Tape, Fault Lines and most recently the Tony Award-nominated Next Fall.  From New York to LA, they inspire artists to generate fresh voices to generate new work through their popular Tuesdays@9 (cold readings of plays, screenplays, stories and music in early development), 1st Mondays (public readings of new plays), and Angels in Progress (weeklong workshops). Their newest venture, Naked Radio, brings the work of talented new writers from the stage to the digital airwaves through weekly blogs and podcasts.  


Naked Angels is led by Geoffrey Nauffts (Artistic Director), John E. Alexander (Managing Director) and Andy Donald (Associate Artistic Director).
