The Ghost Brothers of Darkland County

Posted on by Dina Puthenpurakal Posted in Around Town, Theatre | Leave a comment

Ghost BrothersLooking for a good way to relax after all of that Black Friday shopping? Come attend the performance of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a dark tale full of lust, jealousy, and revenge. Not only does it include the typical, tragic love triangles but also actor/writer/producer Billy Burke who played Charlie Swan from the infamous Twilight Saga. What helps makes this play unique is the musical accompaniment. While the play’s narrative is fantastic, the blues ‘n’ roots music is what unravels the inner mechanics of the different characters. Written by the spectacular Stephen King, this is one play that you simply cannot miss!

Does history tend to repeat itself? Will the McCandless family be destroyed again just like it was in the previous generation? Or will it be saved? Find out at the Oriental Theatre on Friday, November 28.

National Theatre’s “Frankenstein”

Posted on by Elizabeth Draus Posted in Film, Theatre | Leave a comment


Rejoice! The Royal National Theatre‘s 2011 production of Frankenstein will be rebroadcast into cinemas and staged in theatres nationwide.  This dynamic production stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, who alternate between the iconic roles of Victor Frankenstein and his monster.  The actors — who both took away awards for their performances — bring Mary Shelley’s novel to life, granting audiences the opportunity to empathize with both the monster and his creator.  To fully immerse the audience in the original novel, this stage adaptation sticks to its source material remarkably well.  Equally as stunning as the cast and script is the set design, whose minimal layout only serves to add to the imaginative atmosphere of the production.  The show is also aided by the powerful sound design, at times light and whimsical, while at other times equally dark and foreboding.  The story takes us from the monster’s first moments of life to his disastrous confrontation with his creator.

Between the star power, staging, the superb script, and soundtrack, you’re not going to want to miss this!   For more information and to find theaters and tickets, click here.
