The Mystery of Irma Vep

A Penny Dreadful by Charles Ludlam

Directed by Christopher Berhnardt

This definitive spoof of Mystery, Comedy and Gothic melodramas, recently revived Off-Broadway to raves, is a quick change marathon in which two actors play all the roles. Who or what is Irma Vep? A sympathetic werewolf, a vampire and an Egyptian princess brought to life when her tomb is opened make this a comedy that has everything.
"Far and away the funniest two hours on a New York stage... What more meaningful gift could Ludlam bequeath [audiences] than to leave them eternally laughing." - The New York Times

"Mystery of Irma Vep - A Penny Dreadful, The” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
