Ladies and Gentlemen...the show is about to begin!

Geffen Playhouse, Promotional Image

Take some good music, add a few carnival freaks, some love, a little crazy, and you’ll get Nightmare Alley.

A story about fate based in the unbelievable carnival world. Where tricks and treats delight for those who watch, but what about those who live it? The musical focus’s on a specific carny couple and their fight for the love they feel and what it might mean for their little world.

While carnivals themselves offer flights of fancy, and shows if disbelief, this story offers much more. See the carnival world through your own eyes full of awe, and the eyes of those who see and live the other side. Based on the novel by William Lindsay Gresham, this musical offers more than just spectacular visuals.

Not a believer? check out some of the music from composer Jonathan Brielle to get in the mood, and then, buy your tickets and enjoy the show!

At The Geffen Playhouse April 13-May 23. For Tickets call 310-208-5454, or go to the Ticketmaster Geffen site.
