Ben Dibble, a ten-time Barrymore Award nominee and F. Otto Haas Award winner, plays all eleven roles in this darkly comic musical tour de force. Herringbone tells the quirky and haunting story of George Herringbone, a young Depression-era boy with a talent for singing and dancing. Taught by a vaudeville veteran, he discovers he's possessed by the vengeful spirit of his mentor's late partner. This chilling ghost story explores the true price of fame as Herringbone learns that there are no shortcuts to success. Learn More
