I was looking around on archive.org and ran across SE theater. Has anyone heard of this one or knows anything about it?

Did a little research and found this:

"Between 1997 and 2001, at the height of the dot-com bubble, the Sci-Fi channel decided to invest some money into producing a number of original audio stories under the banner of Seeing Ear Theater, essentially a “next generation” of radio plays for a modern audience. A talented team of script-writers, excellent actors and sound effects people crafted a series of remarkable episodes, breathing life into the stories of both classic writers, like Harlan Ellison and Frederic Brown, and modern writers, like Neil Gaiman and J. Michael Straczynski.

I'm glad to see those were preserved as they're no longer on the SciFi Channel's site.

If I recall correctly, they kicked off Seeing Ear Theatre with an updated production of Orson Welles' classic War of the Worlds broadcast, which featured Star Trek actors Leonard Nimoy, Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden, and John DeLancie. The show was performed before a live audience and televised on the SciFi Channel. I assume it's not part of this collection because it has been released commercially on CD.[/i]
