Monsters are Universal: Silver Screams in Hollywood's Golden Age In-Person
REGISTRATION BEGINS SEPTEMBER 5. Monsters Are Universal: Silver Screams in Hollywood's Golden Age -- Largely Literary Theater Company co-founders Sara Showman and Mark Dawidziak use lighthearted sketches, props and costume pieces to explore Hollywood's Golden Age of horror, with a special emphasis on the Universal films starring Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff, as well as the genre's literary origins, from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Bram Stoker's Dracula to Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, from H. G. Wells' The Invisible Man to Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera. Join us for a monstrous good time that shows how famous film fiends became beloved characters. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. Also included is a book signing featuring many of Dawidziak's horror-centric titles, including The Bedside, Bathtub & Armchair Companion to Dracula and his novel with supernatural sleuth Carl Kolchak, Grave Secrets. Space is limited. Registration is required.
