The Exorcist – Live on Stage

If you’re in Los Angeles anytime between July 3 and August 12, get down to the Geffen Playhouse to see the stage adaptation of William Peter Blatty’s The Exorcist. If anyone out there manages to see this production, please post a review.

SYNOPSIS: The most chilling test of faith comes to life on stage.  This world premiere adaptation of the famous 1971 novel documenting the terror and redemption of a ten-year-old girl remains as frightening and relevant as when first experienced. Under the direction of Tony Award winner John Doyle and adapted by acclaimed playwright John Pielmeier (Agnes of God), The Exorcist transforms the unsettling battles of good versus evil, faith versus fact and ego versus ethos into a uniquely theatrical experience as sophisticated as it is suspenseful.
