If you're not ready for Christmas events, but still craving something cultural, there's a new play at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater--The Mystery of Irma Vep: A Penny Dreadful.
Time Magazine calls the play, "A true vaudeville tour de farce . . . a lush and loving parody of every gaslight romance from Jane Eyre to Rebecca, with glancing references from Shakespeare to Poe, to silent movies serials and horror movies of the'30s . . . it's wonderful."
The outrageously funny play is open through Dec. 20.
Thursday - Saturday 7:30 p.m.
Saturday Matinees at 2:00 p.m. on December 12 & 19
Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theater, University Hall on the UCCS campus, 1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs.
