“`The Almeida Theatre in London has the toughest ticket in town: Stage version of Rod Serling’s iconic 1960s science fiction television series. Broadway producers are heading across the pond to check it out. This runs until January 27th before traveling to the West End in March.

“`American playwright Anne Washburn has watched every  Twilight Zone episode before settling on eight to adapt for the Almeida. She picked a couple of classics, including Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up and The Shelter. Fans will know the stories.

“`The themes resonate today: fear of the unknown, paranoia and temptation. And the play opens with Marius Constant’s famous theme song. There is also an actor that portrays Rod Serling who spouts familiar prologues.

“`The Twilight Zone stage production rests within a giant television set. The style is campy, but their are serious moments thrown in for effect. Plus, expect ending zingers that befall the characters.

You are traveling through another dimension… And end up on a stage of imagination… It leads to a trip across an ocean of adventure… Many are drawn to the bright lights complete with the lure of fame and promise… But all that glitters is not gold… This big apple is sinful fruit that is grown… in The Twilight Zone…


“`Forgotten Hollywood Forgotten History, my first book in the series, has just been added to the Thousand Oaks Public Library. The city is located in Ventura County. I appreciate the latest addition.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
