A friend of mine is involved in a play that’s showing Halloween week and it looks pretty awesome:
Where Death imitates Art
Sitting on the banks of the Hudson River, the dark and mysterious town of Moldavia-on-Hudson is haunted with humor. Unfortunately for its residents, the jokes are on them.
Mixing the genres of macabre and farce, Moldavia-on-Hudson resurrects the spirit of live theatre by giving its audience a peek inside the life and times of the bizarre residents of 19th century America’s most twisted town.
Moldavia-on-Hudson is comprised of five comedic vignettes based upon obscure short stories by classic Gothic authors: Edgar Allan Poe- The System of Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether (1845); Ambrose Bierce- A Watcher by the Dead (1890); Hans Christian Andersen- The Shadow (1847); Sir Arthur Conan Doyle- The Brown Hand (1899); & HP Lovecraft- The Thing on the Doorstep (1937).
“Best new October event to get anyone in the Halloween spirit.” – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
“I wish I could see it again, but it’s one weekend only and I’ve been dead for 77 years.” – H.P. Lovecraft
“Being dead hasn’t stopped me from seeing this amazing show, sack up Lovecraft!” – Ambrose Bierce
“Moldavia-on-Hudson is like a NYC coffee – deeply enjoyable, very dark, and slightly overpriced.” – Edgar Allan Poe
“An evening of theater not only fills your soul with warmth and meaning it’s also a great way to meet a woman.” – Hans Christian Andersen
