The Haunting of Night Vale... and NJPAC

The Haunting of Night Vale... and NJPAC

Next Friday, June 24, the team behind the hit podcast series Welcome to Night Vale brings its live show, The Haunting of Night Vale, to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in Newark, New Jersey.

According to The New York Times, “the news out of Night Vale sounds like what might occur if Stephen King or David Lynch was a guest producer at your local Public Radio Station.” The arts and culture magazine Vulture called it “the foundational institution of the fiction-podcast genre.”

The show at NJPAC is the last performance of a monthslong US tour, and it’s happening just a week after Welcome to Night Vale’s tenth anniversary.

We recently spoke with co-creator and writer Jeffrey Cranor and cast member and live show emcee Kate Jones about hitting that ten year milestone, life on the road and in the recording studio, and what it’s like when your quirky, spooky, funny podcast suddenly gets millions of new listeners.
