Fireside Mystery Theatre

Fireside Mystery Theatre is a monthly series of original horror-themed (with a touch of comedy) audio dramas performed live in New York City. The show is inspired by old time radio shows but performed with “a decidedly modern sensibility”, complete with a live, improvised musical score and sound effects.

Fireside Mystery Theatre is a motley assortment of actors, writers, musicians, and technicians united by one common goal: to take your darkest fears and put them in your ears. This twisted take on the old styled radio variety show was birthed by Gustavo Rodriguez and Ali Silva in 2011. The show got its name because it was literally performed in front of a fireplace at The LIC Bar in Long Island City, Queens. The show is currently performed monthly and recorded live at The Slipper Room in New York City. Thanks to the efforts of producer Daniel Graves, the show officially became a podcast in the fall of 2014 and was immediately met with great excitement and acclaim. FMT has a penchant for the mysterious and the macabre as well as a healthy dose of humor and spirited musical performances.
