See it if you're interested in a new take on some well-known tropes; you like "Macbeth"; you would enjoy a live traditional Japanese music underscore.

Don't see it if you tend to get ahead of a story.

Clever, Entertaining, Refreshing, Thought-provoking, Chilling,

See it if Great Halloween fair! Clever mixing of Macbeth with Kabuki for a modern day supernatural revenge tale. Live traditional music is a big +!

Don't see it if Skip if you're looking for cutting edge special effects, because you do need to use your imagination here.

Theatre is Easy
October 29th, 2015

"'Ghost Light: The Haunting' offers up a fresh, modernized take as play-within-a-play of two Broadway-bound theatre stars with chilling yet cheeky homages to kabuki and Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'... The cast of supporting characters and ensemble keeps us hooked into this pleasantly unpredictable theatrical experience from start to finish, and deserve a hearty round of applause."

"A bit scared can mean there is loads of suspense and unexpected things that happen that will startle and rattle you and keep you on edge. If this sounds like what you have in mind, then consider seeing 'Ghost Light: The Haunting'... Prepare to be scared just enough to make it an experience that fits right in with the season and beyond...If you are looking to get spooked-out theater style, then this is for you."

Scream Queenz
October 29th, 2015

"Spirits are very plainly felt throughout 'Ghost Light'. When not performing characters, the members of the ensemble dress in black and walk the stage. When embodying Shakespeare’s witches, they hiss the most poisonous of The Bard’s verse into the ears of the living, tempting them into one despicable act after another. Other times, the ensemble is silently present, acting as statues: a constant reminder that otherworldly forces are perhaps watching."

Center on the Aisle
November 2nd, 2015

“What makes the play linger in the heads and hearts of its audiences is is the haunting performance by the lead actress; the mesmerizing choreography; and the spellbinding traditional...'Ghost Light' suffers from a tad too many scene changes and subplots that risk disrupting the story’s narrative...The play is still a visceral experience, enhanced by the Kabuki music and the physical movement of all the actors. It is this harmony of sound and sight that is truly haunting."
