Tampa Bay, FL – A new radio show Theatre Chat and This 'n That will promote a variety of arts for media reps and show promoters, who work tirelessly promoting the arts. Theatre Chat although not part of this new radio show, shares the information because this is how theatre and arts will thrive in the "fun in the sun arts destination".
The new arts radio show is being produced and hosted by longtime Tampa Bay and Nature Coast actor, director and producer, Jimmy Ferraro and his friend and colleague, Hillsborough-Pinellas entertainer, radio host and picture-book author, Brenda Darnley Martin.
"A phone call from Jimmy Ferraro was very kind asking the use of the name Theatre Chat included in “Theatre Chat and This 'n That" new radio show. Jimmy is not using the sole name Theatre Chat. Any arts information Mr. Ferraro shares would be beneficial to the future of those who support live theatre. Although it is important to remember Theatre Chat and This 'n That radio show is not part of the not for profit Theatre Chat. Richard Cameron Founder/Theatre Chat and BroadwayGlobal.
Ferraro and Martin plans on sharing info and insights on theatre, dance, music, arts, comedy, etc., and lots of “this and that” as well, which is open to interpretation as interesting guests and issues arise. Topics will naturally emphasize productions in the Tampa Bay, Nature Coast and Sumter County areas, but will occasionally venture to other markets as well, to feature exhibits and productions that will be of benefit either intellectually, emotionally or spiritually to the audiences.
Ferraro and Martin first discussed producing this show back in 2009, when Ferraro was a guest on another radio program about the arts hosted in Clearwater, Florida. Between their busy schedules and with Ferraro on the road a great deal of the time, it took four years for the opportunity to present itself. In July 2012 Ferraro and his wife, Dee Etta, were presented with the opportunity to star opposite each other in the national touring company production of “Fiddler on the Roof". This was the dream of a lifetime and they jumped at it readily. All was going well until, in early December, Ferraro tore the meniscus in his right knee during a costume change. Martin, who was in between projects and dealing with her own knee issues, jumped (okay, stood up) at the opportunity to finally make their radio show a reality. Theatre Chat wishes Jimmy Ferraro Theatre Chat and This 'n That much success.
