“Can it truly be Halloween in Pasadena without the Wicked Lit ensemble? For its tenth season, Wicked Lit will have a world premiere adaptation of “Teig O’Kane and the Corpse” by Kerry Kazmierowicztrimm. “The Chimes: A Goblin Story” also returns to the bill (featured in the first two Wicked Lit productions) but with a new production.”

“Beautiful settings and seasonal theatrical productions are as entwined as ivy and wrought iron, at least in the minds of the many fans who wait for a particular event to return to a particular place. And if you love your autumnal dramatics, the sort of presented-live theatrics that call upon the deeper and more chilling themes of the fall, then you know Wicked Lit, the annual offering from Unbound Productions.”
