Today's NY Times has a nice piece on the upcoming production of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County. Opening at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta, it is the first collaboration between Stephen King and John Mellencamp.
“I got this call out of the blue from John Mellencamp, saying he wanted to write a play,” Stephen King said.
“What I always remember was he tuned my guitar while we talked,” Mr. King added of their first meeting at Mr. King’s Florida home. “He said, ‘I have this idea for a story,’ and the idea was a classic, about ghosts in a cabin. And what I really liked is that we could put ghosts and live people in a cabin, and they wouldn’t see each other. Visually, that turned my dials.”
Tickets are now on sale at the Alliance Theatre box office. Ghost Brothers opens April 11th.
