THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP

A Penny Dreadful by Charles Ludlam
Directed by Everett Quinton
Limited Engagement Now Playing thru May 11 Only
“Ridiculous is a very much more respectable word than our critics are aware. It’s a sensibility.”– Charles Ludlam

    An American comedy classic of theatrical language and transformation, careening outrageously through Shakespeare, Victorian melodrama, Poe and Hitchcock, this high style quick-change act and hilariously horrifying love--letter to all things gothic marks the return of the Ridiculous to the West Village – replete with werewolves, vampires and mummies.
   After his first wife, Irma, meets her unfortunate demise on the mysterious moors, Egyptologist Lord Edgar takes Lady Enid as his second wife, much to the dismay of his protective maid, Jane, and his leering swineherd, Nicodemus.  But when Lady Enid suffers a similarly supernatural attack, life at Mandacrest Estate quickly becomes a gripping whodunit (or whatdunit) where nothing is remotely what it seems.
Cast Arnie Burton, Robert Sella
Creative Team John Arnone, Tracy Bersley, Ramona Ponce, Rick Sordelet, Peter West, Karin White, Brandon Wolcot
