say Hooray to LA with comic book crimes they didn’t want you to see

For ONE NIGHT ONLY! NIGHT OF NOIR closes out the last night of the Bob Baker Marionette Theater’s recently unearthed, historic show “Hooray LA” with a fitting tribute to the City of Angeles.

Witness tales from the pages of vintage crime comic books – exposed! uncensored and LIVE! In this retro variety show, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater blows a kiss to its hometown, Los Angeles, by blending hard-boiled culture and the absurd in an evening of performances inspired by noir movies, pulp fiction and the fierce crime comic books of the 40’s. The show features our unique multi-media, old radio show-style performances of VINTAGE COMICS plus projected art, live sound effects, live cabaret music, thrilling acts, and, of course, puppets.

While LA was being immortalized in harsh blacks and whites 70 years ago, crime comics were the dominant genre. Like noir movies, comics were filled with sordid tales of love gone wrong, hearts broken and unhappily ever afters. These aren’t heart-warming tales – these are the bloody comic book crime stories that were burned in the 40’s and banned in the 50’s for being too hard-boiled, too violent and too much!

Plus, we have recently been given permission to premier a comic story by legendary 1950’s comic book publisher EC for this show! They were the gold standard of comics in the Golden Age. Don't miss it!

These vintage tales are brought to life for the 21st Century along with the classic, show-stopping performances by the Bob Baker Marionettes, who have been making LA swoon for over 60 years.

♠ The show is open to all.

♠ Candy and refreshments will be available, even the adult kind.

♠ Part of the proceeds go to the Bob Baker Marionette Theater, as it builds plans for its future in Los Angeles.
