This fall, The Johnny Cycle will return featuring new, reimagined content for a limited 4-week engagement. This theatrical experience explores the impact of war on those left behind, and the way in which the nationalistic rhetoric of the WWI-era impacted the life and career of the blacklisted Hollywood writer Dalton Trumbo. Inspired by Trumbo's novel, Johnny Got His Gun, audiences are guided through an epic and intimate experience examining the costs of politics, power, and war.
We are currently engaged in a crowdfunding effort to help support this expanded production by increasing performer pay, keeping ticket prices low, and investing in new technical elements to bring the production to life in the best way possible.
Preview invitations, behind the scene tours, VIP ticket access with exclusive content, cast meet-n-greets and more are all part of the perk landscape. You can find out more about the crowdfunding effort here: IndieGoGo.
“The Johnny Cycle” is an undeniably memorable evening spent in with a supremely talented cast in an extraordinary location exploring the themes of belief, patriotism, and death. It’s an incredibly interesting alternative in a form flooded with horror stories, and I highly recommend checking it out. - INSIDE THE MAGIC
This is an emotionally charged, politically fascinating, intricately woven thrill ride. The odd mix of history, fiction and philosophy unfolds in scenes of intense mystery and melancholy. Sound a little bit heavy? Maybe, it is. But rest assured it is a concoction designed to thrill. All you have to do is give yourself over to it. - MY HAUNT LIFE
