Welcome back to The MonsterGrrls' 31 Days Of Halloween, everybody! This is Frankie Franken reporting on a cool new play from Jackson, MS's Fondren Theatre Workshop--The Monster Monologues, a play in which fourteen famous monsters do some fairly serious yet funny self-examination.
Written as a collaboration between John Kander (who appears as Dracula), Brad Bishop, Opie Cooper, Danny Dauphin, Brent Hearn, John Howell and Bret Kenyon, TMM features thirteen of the world's notorious classic movie monsters gathering at the funeral of The Fly. Wondering if they are all past their prime and jealous of the new generation of hipper monsters, the Fang Gang starts to question their credibility and careers, while at the same time wondering just who killed The Fly.
This play will be presented at The Cedars, 4145 Old Canton Road, at 8 P.M. on October 23-25, and on the 29th, 30th and 31st, with special Halloween shows on the 30th and 31st at 10 P.M. If you're in the neighborhood, come out and enjoy a cool Halloween theatre experience!
See you tomorrow for more of The MonsterGrrls' 31 Days Of Halloween!
