Aloha again! Thanks for the suggestion [for the audiobook]! Dramatic readings and scripted radio shows would be appreciated too!
(as asked by an Anon)
I won’t call this a masterpost for readings and scripted radio shows because there’s probably lots more out there I don’t have, but here’s what I do have. I wish I had pictures from all the productions, but in my extensive extensive image search (i.e. five minutes on Google) I could only find the three above.*
