Welcome to Night Vale — one of the most downloaded podcasts in the world — launches the Welcome to Night Vale 2018 / 2019 World Tour with included comeback show in Prague.
The New York Times described the remakable atmosphere as “what might occur if Stephen King or David Lynch was a guest producer at your local public radio station“.
New tour will bring a new story to the surreal desert town of Night Vale, examining the role secrets play in the lives there. This entirely new script written by Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor is a completely stand-alone story that will never be heard on the podcast, and can be enjoyed by both long-time fans and newcomers alike. The live show will deliver rich, nuanced drama in the form of a community radio show, and will continue with the Night Vale tradition of finding new ways to incorporate the audience into the story.
The tour will feature Cecil Baldwin as Cecil, the voice of Night Vale, Symphony Sanders as Tamika Flynn, and Meg Bashwiner as Deb and the Emcee. Shows also feature live music from Disparition and a special musical guest as “The Weather.”
Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor created the Welcome to Night Vale podcast in 2012. The show quickly became popular. In July 2013 it was downloaded 2.5 million times, making it No. 1 on iTunes, ahead of popular programs such as This American Life and Radiolab. Fink and Cranor have written two New York Times bestselling novels based on the show titled Welcome to Night Vale and It Devours! and now they’re developing podcast for FX television.
