Venue: Shimberg Playhouse
A musical entertainment adapted by Stephen Currens, music by David Aldritch, based on the work of Edward Gorey
Featuring a special encore mini-concert tribute to The Tiger Lillies' The Gorey End
Directed by David M. Jenkins
Oct. 24 - Nov. 18, 2012
Not so much of a return as a reboot, Jobsite revisits their wildly popular 2007 production that enjoyed a sold-out four-week run. Perfect for the halloween season, this production is a monochromatic musical love letter to all things Edward Gorey. Following the 75-minute musical entertainment there will be an encore of selections from The Tiger Lillies' The Gorey End album, which was written from a box of unpublished stories sent to them by Edward Gorey. Gorey Stories features beloved tales such as “The Hapless Child,” “The Curious Sofa,” and “The Gashleycrumb Tinies.” Expect a pared-down cast, a fleshed-out band with a new sound, and bigger and better production values! The Tampa Bay Times said of the 2007 production that “It's a collision of Dr. Seuss, Charles Addams and Edvard Munch. Combine that look with Gorey's morbid but jaunty stories, verse and songs, and you end up with a memorable theater experience." For the official website, visit jobsitetheater.org.
