Hurricane and all. It’s the morning after and another Brooklyn Halloween Show takes it’s place in out little corner of history. I have to say that it was the toughest show we have ever done, and a damn hurricane doesn’t help to keep things on track. I guess I will have to write up a story about all that, but for now here is a pic from last night. Thanks to all who attended, donated, cheered and lent your enthusiasm.
Happy Day of the Dead,
Happy Halloween everyone! Now that Mother Nature has given us a small demonstration of her awesome power we shall attempt to appease her with Trick or Treating, but it will be difficult.
Tonight the souls of the dead walk the Earth in many forms. Ghouls, Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolves reanimated Mummies, Witches, Zombies and Demons. In Japan Kappa the water spirit walks amongst mankind, while Godzilla (in a fit of rage against man’s nuclear follies) crushes and incinerates all who live. In the Amazon the Creature of the Black Lagoon rises from the water to claim a human bride, horribly maiming and killing ANY who stand in it’s way. In Haiti Zombie corpses will drag themselves about doing the bidding of the one who commands them.
This article and video says it maybe better than I could right here anyway. Only 3 days to go now, and the weather/hurricane is supposedly coming by the morning. By Wednesday it is supposed to be much better o that means……THE show goes on! See you then
Well isn’t this special? Seems there is a big storm headed our way right about Halloween time. Of course it is still 5 days away so things “could” change a bit. It has happened before.
This is the week where stuff gets REALLY serious! Something has to be built, or a costumes isn’t finished, or audio needs to be changed, Banners, sign, props on and on………. and rehearsals and rehearsals! Somehow though it most always comes together and works on Halloween. Tonight is the second rehearsal with everyone. The Sunday rehearsal went ok but now we are really in the thick of it.
Enough about the work. What about the show? Let’s start meeting the characters that will be showing up on Halloween. First up is Donald The Janitor. This guy is a blend in the background/nobody notices much maintenance man whose has the additional job of also replacing last year’s Card Girl. More on that next time!
This year Universal is marketing their 100th anniversary by releasing 100 blu rays of their classic films. To Kill a Mockingbird, Jaws, The Sting, All Quiet on the Western Front, ET, Harvey, and The Blues Brothers are some of them, BUT as good as those films may be THAT is not what is exciting us here at Brooklyn Halloween.
Will you be going to see both shows? Just one? Can you make it at all on October 31?
