Vengeance at Collinwood
« on: October 11, 2006, 09:46:48 PM »
"Vengeance at Collinwood" was the second reader's style theater performance of a Dark Shadows play.  Unlike "Return to Collinwood", this one was not released as a CD.  Its my understanding that it was recorded though.  Does anyone know why it was not released?  Do you all think there is a demand for a totally live DVD of this performance? I for one, feel a need to have it.  Its now the only totally "lost" episode of Dark Shadows. Incidentally, I'd also like to have the performance of the Art Wallace piliot as well.

There was no studio recording session. No recording exists that would be suitable for a CD release. My understanding is that those involved in the editing process for the CD release of Return to Collinwood were not in a position to commit the same amount of time to preparing a second CD release; therefore, no release of Jamison Selby's second radio drama to CD was ever planned.

I would be satisfied with an unedited DVD release of the live performance.  I've heard from people at the Festival that there were video cameras recording the event.  Surely a special DVD release of this show would be possible.  If there's a demand, perhaps letters to MPI would help?
