WICKED LIT: THE CHIMES & THE CORPSE

Despite the proportions of Wicked Lit being considerably more constricted this Halloween season, I'm very pleased to report that the considerable talent involved in bringing the show to life has remained intact. Particular attention should be drawn to actors Richard Large (as Toby Veck in The Chimes) and Kevin Dulude (The Corpse in The Corpse) for delivering such authenticity and compassion to their performances, but all the other leads and supporting cast members are uniformly excellent across the board. In addition to the confined spaces, Wicked Lit‘s special effects also feel more subdued this year, and though I missed seeing the company's trademark jaw-dropping puppeteering work and spectacular tree-shaking scares in the show, I was able to enjoy and appreciate a quieter, more atmospherically eerie entry in what continues to be one of my most treasured Halloween activities in the greater Los Angeles area.

Wicked Lit 2017

“Wicked Lit” sits near the very top of my list of immersive theater events I've experienced, mostly because it's abundantly clear how much work, love, and care goes into the production. The show makes consistently excellent use of its mausoleum home– frequently venturing into the surrounding grounds and neighboring cemetery– while simultaneously combining first-rate acting with effectively moody lighting and chilling effects, all of which add up to an undeniably unforgettable whole.
