For those ‘lost souls’ looking for a haunting evening of mystery and music, the Scranton Cultural Center will provide just that on Thursday, Oct. 30 and Friday, Oct. 31 with “The Way of All Flesh: A Graveyard Cabaret,” produced by the REV Theatre Company of New York City.
Part of the Philly Fringe Festival, the show was created by Rev’s Co-Artistic Director Rudy Caporaso and directed by Rosey Hay, co-artistic director. A cabaret-style atmosphere brings a lavishly costumed musical mash-up straight from the mists of the “graveyard” after sunset.
A pre-show performance will take place during cocktail hour by the Fairy Tale Venture, featuring story teller Robert Anderson with musical accompaniment by Jason Smeltzer, theremin; Julian Sparicino, flute, soprano sax; and Chelsea Smarr, harp. Together, they will tell some stories with eerie tunes to set the mood. While these dark tales are told, attendees can have their tarot cards read by John Pivovarnick.
Tickets for the Graveyard Cabaret are $20. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and again at 8:15 p.m. for cocktail hour with the show beginning at 8 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. A cash bar and light fare will be available for purchase. Tickets can be purchased at the Fidelity Box Office at the Scranton Cultural Center in person or by calling 570-344-1111.
