If you live in Addison, Texas and would like a FREE night at the theater, read on!
Addison's WaterTower Theatre is offering you an opportunity to see the next production, The Mystery of Irma Vep on Sunday, September 30, 2012 at 7:30 p.m for FREE. This comedy, by playwright Charles Ludlum, was the most produced play in the United States in 1991; and in 2003, it became the longest-running play ever produced in Brazil. Two actors portray eight characters, so this will be a quick-change marathon behind the scenes for costume changes. The play is a send-up of Victorian melodramas, farce and cinema, and is filled with literary references, particularly to William Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, and the Brontë sisters; and classic films like Wuthering Heights, Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca, and The Mummy's Curse.
Directed by Terry Martin, The Mystery of Irma Vep is a spoof of the classic melodrama. A host of gothic characters come to life onstage – from sympathetic werewolves to Egyptian mummy princesses. As Lord Edgar Hillcrest and Lady Enid try to solve the mystery of Irma Vep, they find that life is anything but normal in their spooky English manor house.
