It ain't exactly horror... in fact it's nothing like horror. But I'm sure there's some of y'all genre film fans out there who have a soft spot in your hearts for silent pictures.
And Charlie Chaplin is dead. So maybe convince yourself that this is a ghost story. Or a Zombie Tramp story.
Regardless, go see this show. This weekend only at the Theatre Building.
The clowning and character business is spot on. The story is unabashedly sentimental -- a good two thirds of the crowd were sniffling at the end of the show, and EVERYONE stood to applaud.
And as it's a "silent movie," the whole thing is underscored by FOWC and keyboard player for the DEATHSCRIBE house band, Seeking Wonderland, Mr. Scott Borchert, improvising ragtime ditties.
No fooling. Absolutely stellar.
