Murder Ballad Murder Mystery

Murder Ballad Murder Mystery unearths a host of dank and dirty bayou bandits whose names once marauded headlines, wanted posters, and LP sleeves. Watch these corpses whittle out new murder tools to make mincemeat of fair maidens and turn your sweetest dream into your worst nightmare. This psychedelic bluegrass symphonic romp through the swamp spins infamous southern-gothic tales of torture and true crime into a circus massacre of whodunits. A blast from the past straight up from the grave. Get caught at the crossroads, October 23rd at The Vortex. Halloween Drink Specials. Costumes welcome.

  1. I may not know allot about the theater, technically speaking, but I do know when in having a good time and this show is a good time From start to finish. Every character and every song worked for me, even on a second viewing I was completely engaged and delighted. You know how after seeing a show you probably talk about the stand out parts, a particularly good song, or a weak performance that draws your attention away from the show as a whole? Well this show doesn't have that, it's not that no one was great, they all were, and they all seemed gel as a grope. It seems to me that is really what adds up to a successful show at the end of the night, and that's what They've got here. Go see for your self, You"ll be glad you did.
