The Dunwich Horror Picture Show

Warner Grand Theatre
Date and time: 
Saturday, April 30, 2016 - 9:30pm

Club Pangea's HP Loveshaft and his cast of gender rebels join forces with writer Cody Goodfellow to bring you The Dunwich Horror Picture Show, a shadow cast production in collaboration with the musical stylings of Cassadine, featuring Nathan Carson of Witch Mountain. Adds producer Cody Goodfellow, "Lovecraft's fiction seethes with exactly the kind of repressed Victorian hysteria that Rocky Horror parodied so successfully, and the [Roger Corman's] AIP film rather clumsily adds sexual tension and psychedelia to the mix; so this presentation is more about letting that repressed sexuality and frenzied hunger for transformation explode under pressure, than about simply re-enacting the drama onscreen"

Roger Corman's trippy take on the tale of the Whately family,now as it was meant to be with spine-chilling live score from Cassadine (w/ Nate Carson of Witch Mountain) and bizarro shadow-cast performance by Club Pangaea, while Sandra Dee's body double gyrates and Dean Stockwell chants from The Necronomicon. You will be changed! 

Club Pangæa

Combining an LGBT-focused cabaret with a BDSM play party, Club Pangæa creates a one-of-a-kind social event while treating guests to a scandalous and spectacular stage show. Using primarily the mediums of drag and burlesque, performers explore the intersections of gender, sexuality, and self-expression. 

Shadow casting for the 1970 film The Dunwich Horror,  Pangæa, LA’s queer cabaret, will bring you a show unlike any other: The Dunwich Horror Picture Show

Previously attended:

Cassadine is Erin Jane Laroue (Jamais Jamais, Lost Cities)  Amanda Machina (House of Badger, King Black Acid, Metal Noam), and Nathan Carson (Witch Mountain, etc).--“The invitation to provide a live score to one of my horror/camp film favorites has mutated Cassadine’s birth from a studio recording project to a live entity that takes after its father and both its mothers. Erin, Amanda, and I plan some highly orchestrated irreverence for your bemusement and horror.” - Nathan Carson
"Exploring Lovecraft’s story, the film and its original score by Les Baxter (one of the composers who I cherish most) has made The Dunwich Horror part of my very fabric now.” - Erin Jane Laroue
