A new musical starring Carrie Manolakos (Mamma Mia!) and Max Sangerman (Smokey Joe’s Café), Lights on the Radio Tower, will stream on Five OHM TV beginning today, Friday, March 5, 2021, for a run through March 25 (a ticket offers the viewer access for 24 hours). Originally developed at the Adirondack Theatre Festival and Bloomington Playwrights Project, this thrilling two-hander rock musical tells the story of Molly and Jesse, a brother and sister who, after eighteen years apart, reunite at their decaying childhood home following the death of their father. The estranged rock duo’s competing recollections of their childhood, their last night together, and their final gig force them to face the painful truth of their past. It’s a story of regret, the power of reconciliation, and the unbreakable bond between a sister and brother.
