Nightmare Alley

Geffen Playhouse
April 13 – May 23

James Barbour leads cast down Nightmare Alley
Featuring Melody Butiu, Larry Cedar, Michael McCarty, Mary Gordon Murray, Anise E. Ritchie, Leslie Stevens and Alet Taylor

Step into Nightmare Alley and enter the titillating world of carnies, cons and clairvoyants. With a score as wild as a funhouse and as evocative as a beautiful tightrope walker, this world premiere musical tells the tale of a young carnie couple who tempt the fickle hand of fate. Based on the darkly evocative 1946 novel of the same name, Nightmare Alley is a night at the theater full of special effects, wondrous feats and enough spirit to make believers of us all. But remember, here, things are never as they seem.

Please join us for Nightmare Alley. Although a preview event and not part of the festival proper, we are happy to connect you to their box office for ticketing …
