UK premiere of Richard Foreman’s musical Hotel For Criminals which plays at the New Wimbledon Studio from 18th to 29th October 2016, with a press night on the 20th October. The show is produced by Wanderlust Productions (Halbwelt Kultur, Up From Paradise, The Cherry Orchard, Dr. Selavy’s Magic Theatre).
Written by the pre-eminent Richard Foreman, Hotel For Criminals is a brilliantly sophisticated and funny reworking of Louis Feuillade’s silent film phantasmagoria that chronicles the foul deeds and the mysterious powers of Fantomas and his vampire gang. The audience enters a subterranean world where no boundary, no moment, no person is ever safe or certain. Reality is bent to the whims of Fantomas’s evil imagination and the literal twisted to the point of outrageous.
With music by Obie Award winning and Grammy Award nominated composer Stanley Silverman (Up From Paradise, Dr. Selavy’s Magic Theatre, Africanus Instructus), Hotel For Criminals promises to be the most exciting and subversive show to hit London this year.
