Broadcast takes us on a journey through the history of radio. This folksy, chamber musical weaves its wireless way thru the lives of telegraph operators, jingle writers, scientists, pilots, and many more who witnessed this technological evolution first-hand. The silent, invisible sound that had the power to reach out to people across the world is at the center of it all! Telling this tale of yesterday-year in the new age of social media, Broadcast can’t help but invite the question: Does this kind of world wide connectivity ultimately help to unite us as a people or does it facilitate our division?
