Rod Serling's voice brought back childhood memories of my family's eager anticipation of the next episode of Twilight Zone.

The standout for me was "A Kind of Stopwatch". Steven Lamprininos, as Mr. McNulty, transformed a black and white office...continued

I thought this would be cheesy, but I wanted to give it a shot because I'm a big fan of this show. WOW! It blew my mind how awesome the acting was and how awesome (and subtle) the set was. I don't regret this and I hope that in the future the...continued

Description

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension, a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You are moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into The Twilight Zone. This popular, critically-acclaimed theatrical adaptation of Rod Serling’s classic TV series with episodes by Rod Serling and Charles Beaumont features various self-contained stories, in an exciting mixture of fantasy, science fiction, suspense and horror, all of which lead to a deeper realization about human nature.

Originally airing 1959-1964, the television series is still running marathons during holiday weekends, which is what inspired, directors, Darri Kristin and David Campos to bring the episodes to the stage. “It wasn’t merely the nostalgia aspect of the project, though, like a lot of people I can easily recall episodes, characters, and even lines that left an impression on me. It was really that Serling was able to expose our darkest fears and turn our belief system on end. I think that’s why people are so drawn to the series fifty years later.”

This new installment of The Twilight Zone will present four episodes:

People are Alike All Over — When a space expedition crashes on Mars, Sam Conrad is terrified when he encounters Martians. To his initial relief, they are human, extremely friendly and apparently just like us.

A Kind of Stopwatch — The world’s biggest bore and avid talker gets a magical stopwatch that can stop everything except him. But when he misuses it, a wonderful conversation piece becomes a real party killer.

_The Obsolete Man _— In a future where religion and books have been banned, a librarian is judged obsolete by the Chancellor and sentenced to death.

Living Doll — Erich is displeased when his wife buys an expensive doll for his step-daughter. He becomes even more displeased when the doll tells him she doesn’t like him!
