This was the strange, but strangely compelling, show I was hoping to find this year. From the opening ukelele chords accompanied by Hartman’s manic expressions, I was struck by the dark humour.
Hartman’s “Edgar Allen” character is over the top, with huge near double-takes and extreme movement. Which might have played as simply corny, but tempered with the extreme “straight man” expression and delivery of Ryan’s character, just works.
This is another show that is selling out, so go early – but if you’d like a dose of dark, definitely go.
