“Cthulhu Too, The Stranger in Yellow”
I love a good mystery, stories that are suspenseful and make your heart race with anticipation of what will happen next.
Many writers feel the only way to portray a thriller is by slashing everyone to bits showing every gory detail of blood and guts. Of course there is everyone’s favorite go to story….the scantily clad teens who decide they need to investigate the strange noises coming from an abandon shed…in the middle of nowhere, during a zombie apocalypse! That never seems to end well.
Eddie Wise does not need to cheapen his stories by using those techniques. He has written a true classic thriller with “Bride of Cthulhu”, and its sequel “The Stranger in Yellow”
“The Stranger in Yellow” is set in the 1940’s and brings back the characters of Emma and Holly, two cousins played by sisters, Liz and Kat Vermeulen. These actresses brilliantly give life to the complex cousins, who have already experienced enough terror for a lifetime as seen in “Bride of Cthulhu”
Again it seems that diabolical forces are at work trying destroy the world, and our heroines are right in the middle. These talented performers bring strength and a great chemistry to Emma and Holly. But don’t look for damsels in distress with the female characters in this show, Emma and Holly may have moments of weakness, but when danger threatens their family or friends they show heroic resilience and courage. The other female characters bring their own degree of strength to the plot. The sexy and mysterious Parker Abbernath (Molly Walter) takes the audience on an exciting ride of misdirection and deceit. Angie Hernandez as Margaret the resident cook and baker, always has the perfect line or pie to solve any problem.
Actor Ashton Simmons brings comic relief to the stage with his quick wit and well placed humor as Holly’s little brother Davis.
Torene White, Johnathan Schell, Hunter Lyke -Ho-Gland and Jessica Mitchell round out this superb cast. Every member of the company brings a sense of mystery to their roles making the audience wonder are they good or bad, and who is “The Stranger in Yellow?”
Eddie Wise has once again given us a roller coaster ride of suspense, romance, heartbreak and comedy, all brilliantly delivered by a talented cast and crew.
“Stranger in Yellow” guarantees to keep you on the edge of your seat until the final curtain.
