Mystery of Irma Vep
By Charles Ludlam
Directed by Kenneth Ansloan
The Mystery of Irma Vep—the name is an anagram for the word "vampire"—is a hilarious satire of literary and film classics including Hitchcock's Rebecca, Victorian melodrama, and Wuthering Heights, studded with werewolves, mummies, ghosts, and vampires. Two actors play eight characters of both sexes and whirl through 35 costume changes in the course of the two-hour show. Its playing style combines camp comedy with a lovingly serious embrace of what Ludlam called "those things held in low esteem by society."
October 10-31, 2014. Fri-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm. Two performances on Fri Oct 31: 7:30pm, 10:30pm,. Tickets $22.
