Everyone involved with this production did nothing short of spectacular work. Do not miss this show: It is worth every penny and then some of its ticket price.

'The Mystery of Irma Vep' moves IRT's virtuosity into the foreground, where it rubs shoulders with sheer comic gusto.

Wei-Huan Chen | Indy Star

In a comedy like this, where the energy must never drop, it’s clear the two actors, along with director James Still, rose to the challenge.

We saw the production on 2/4.  I was leary.  When people I don't know say "you will laugh" my mental response is, we'll see.  Well, "they" were spot on.  Even the interaction with the audience, which sometimes causes me to cringe, was handled brilliantly.  A spectacular farce.  Get your body into a seat and be prepared for almost anything but surely to laugh for laugh you will.  One tip.  Don't take your eyes off the actors or the stage.

About the Play


Comedy tour de force. You won’t want to miss this hilarious mash-up of chilling Gothic horror story and passionate Victorian bodice-ripper. Two actors play a mysterious archaeologist, a flighty new bride, a saucy housekeeper, a lovable werewolf and an Egyptian mummy, all in a dizzying quick-change marathon. You’ll be howling at the moon—with laughter.
