The Mystery of Irma Vep
A Penny Dreadful
By Charles Ludlam
Directed by Steve Wright
October 30-November 23
The season opens with this Charles Ludlam definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas, recently revived off-Broadway to rave reviews. It is a quick-change extravaganza in which two actors play all the roles. A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire and an Egyptian princess are brought to life when her tomb is opened in this mad-cap comedy, perfect for the Halloween season!
Artistic director and Curio co-founder Paul Kuhn is set to co-star with Curio company member Rich Bradford!
