Day of the Dead Weekend: Baltimore and New York

Murder on the Bare Stage starring Stephen Mead will travel for the post-Halloween weekend, two dates in two cities: Baltimore for the Day of the Dead Poets Society Soiree to benefit Litmore, a new literary arts center; and then New York for Pop-Up Theater @ Page 22, hosted by actor and director Tony Torn and poet Lee Ann Brown at their salon in Chelsea.

Baltimore, Friday November 1st, 7pm
Litmore's Day of the Dead Poets Society Soiree
at the new Litmore Literary Arts Center
1702 South Road
Baltimore, Maryland 21209


New York, Saturday November 2nd, 8pm
"Pop-Up Theater" @ Page 22
435 West 22nd Street
New York, New York 10011

Both nights we will presenting versions of the show presented at CapFringe 2013:

described by one reviewer as “a return to the very heart and essence of theater,” Murder on the Bare Stage combines writer Magus Magnus’ approach to the Idyll(theater of imagination) with actor Stephen Mead’s steampunk, daringly retro style of Victorian-era dramatic recitation for a scary, suspenseful entry into new and classic works exploring the mindscape of violent crime.
DC Metro Theater Arts rated the show “Must-See,” 5 Stars, and “Best of the Fringe” during its popular CapFringe 2013 run, and Washington City Paper declared star Stephen Mead’s performance “masterful.”
