Lovecraft on Stage

http://i.pbase.com/u38/hjsteed/upload/39376791.029DogWashManhattanTheatreStore.jpg

Manhattan Theatresource has adapted H.P. Lovecraft's Things at the Doorstep. How does horror translate to the stage? According to The Rejectionist at Tor.com, the adaptation turns out to be:
an unexpectedly brilliant mediation on the use and function of horror, on H.P. Lovecraft himself, on the supernatural, on storytelling, on death, on hope.
Read the full review. And if you're in Manhattan, check out the show. Maybe they'll be encouraged to adapt some more Lovecraft. And that's always a good thing.


Things at the Doorstep plays at Manhattan Theatre Source, 177 MacDougal Street, through March 26, 2011. Performances are Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8PM, and Sunday, March 20th at 7 PM. Tickets are $18 and can be purchased at theatresource.org or by calling 866.811.4111.
