The Mystery of Irma Vep

By Charles Ludlam

Directed by Laura Nicholas

The Lake Geneva Theatre Company returns this summer with Charles Ludlam's award-winning comedy to downtown Lake Geneva. This definitive spoof of Gothic melodramas, recently revived Off Broadway to raves, is a quick-change marathon in which two actors play all the roles. We will even feature a werewolf and vampire for good measure.

What the critics have to say about the play:

"Far and away the funniest two hours on a New York stage....What more meaningful gift could Ludlam bequeath [audiences] than to leave them eternally laughing." N.Y. Times
"A really good laugh ... The story has to be seen to be believed." N.Y Post
"Lunatic fun that keeps you in stitches." N.Y. Daily News
"A true vaudeville tour de farce.... It's wonderful." Time
"A hearty mixture of thrills, laughter and extravagant showmanship." Village Voice.
