About this show

The Mystery of Irma Vep by Charles Ludlam is one of the most produced comedies in US history. Named one of 1984's best plays by Time Magazine and the New York Times, it is a tribute to gothic horror films liberally stealing from well known film classics like The Mummy's Curse and Hitchcock's Rebecca. Literary detectives will also recognize dialog lifted from Ibsen, Shakespeare, and Poe. "Irma" is a tour de force for Sean Harris and Rich Hollman who play all 8 characters racing through a quick change marathon complete with werewolves, vampires and damsels in distress.
