Freakier than Frankenstein, weirder than Wolfman, more deadly than Dracula, Cthulhu is the monster other monsters have nightmares about. The dark masterpiece of H.P. Lovecraft, whom Stephen King calls "the greatest practitioner of the classic horror tale," Cthulhu moves from page to stage in the Visceral Company's new adaptation of The Call of Cthulhu. Drama Desk nominee Frank Blocker has ingeniously adapted the original short story and now plays all nine characters in a bravura performance. Though set across decades, each character finds themselves ensnared in the same mystery of the alien god Cthulhu, the cult that worships him ... and the doomsday his awakening will bring. Produced by the team behind last year's sold-out Lovecraft: Nightmare Suite, The Call of Cthulhu will take audiences to a place where "even death may die." Learn More
