“I’m a big Stephen King fan, and a fan of the original book and movie,” says Equinox Theatre director Colin Roybal. “There are some moments of sheer musical fun, but overall, it’s true to the original horror novel.”
Even better for horror fans, Roybal promises that any changes only amp up the original’s bloodbath of an ending. “The destruction that happens is very much reimagined and becomes even more horrific in our production,” he says. “It integrates a lot of technical elements and an amazing cast of actors who are able to really terrify the audience.”
The play opens tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Bug Theatre, 3654 Navajo Street, and runs Fridays and Saturday nights through November 30. For tickets, $20, and information, visit equinoxtheatredenver.com.
