Phantasmagoria returns to ATLANTA
with 5 performances at 7 Stages in Little Five Points
Atlanta, GA - After wowing audiences with 8 years of performance in Florida, and its first two touring shows including 2015s SOLD OUT PERFORMANCES in Atlanta, the critically acclaimed Victorian Horror Troupe PHANTASMAGORIA, will bring its third touring show direct from the Orlando Fringe for a ONE WEEK engagement at 7 Stages in Little Five Points.
PHANTASMAGORIAs Wickedest Tales of All will explode onto the stage of 7 Stages with its haunting and whimsical stories of horror, Phantastical dance, live music, explosive stage combat, large scale puppetry and enthralling storytelling. Join this evocative troupe of storytellers, dancers, and chorus as they embark on adventures through their most popular tales of terror, horrific folk tales, legends and myths from around the world.
From the seething madness of Charles Dickens A Madmans Manuscript to the bloody and visceral revenge of the Hindu Tale of the Churel, the macabre offerings of centuries old ghastly Nursery Rhymes from Gammer Gurtons Garland and crashing headlong into the inescapable and deathly menace of one of Edgar Allan Poes most well known works The Masque of the Red Death and much, MUCH more! Phantasmagoria will take to the stage with true vengeance!
With the ongoing critically acclaimed success of the past eight years of ongoing original shows - as well as ever popular special events and appearances throughout the year WICKEDEST TALES OF ALL will feature the Best Of the last seven years of sold out shows that have enjoyed rave reviews all in newly approached and re-imagined versions.
Under the creation and direction of John DiDonna, with co-direction by Seth Kubersky and Kevin G. Becker, the choreography of Mila Makarova and Serafina Schiano, fight direction by Bill Warriner, and all original music and soundscapes by Les Caulfield and other artists including Tod Kimbro, costumes by Shelly Henriott, and projections by Dana Mott, this new installment presents us with a truly Phantasmagorical way to spend a whimsical, macabre and exhilarating evening of theater in the middle of Atlanta and Little Five Points!
