Just earlier this week, Fango celebrated the theatre being particularly macabre this summer. Add another—an adaptation of one of the scariest tales of all time at that—to the pile!
Richard Chamberlain (THE LAST WAVE) and Brooke Shields will headline John Pielmeier's stage adaptation of William Peter Blatty's THE EXORCIST this summer. Opening July 11 at L.A.'s Geffen Playhouse, the latest take on the classic tale of a girl possessed sounds like it'll be eschewing some of the more spectacular moments in favor of hard debate.
“The story of the battle between faith and evil needed no spinning heads or green vomit,” said playwright John Pielmeier. “The horror should unfold instead on a simple set with an incredible cast (which we absolutely have), and the central conflict between doubting Father Karras and the demon should be a series of debates, in which the young girl possessed is the least of the figures present.”
For tickets, head to the Geffen Playhouse. Previews begin July 3.
