Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful
Tonight @ the Off Broadway Theatre - 7:30 p.m.
Tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Off Broadway Theatre, Next Act Theatre continues its production of Charles Ludlam’s Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful, a popular, idiosyncratic masterpiece starring John McGivern and Christopher Tarjan, and directed by the company’s artistic director, David Cecsarini. The play is a lightning-quick comedy featuring intellectual absurdity, cross-dressing, quick changes and an entire ensemble cast depicted by just two manic actors.
