Enjoy vintage tales from the darkside of Hollywood and romance – uncensored and LIVE! Captured Aural Phantasy Theater presents the FORBIDDEN LOVE SHOW at the historic El Cid for 1 night only, this Sunday, March 9! This eclectic theater troupe uses their signature retro-radio style to create a unique and hilarious variety show that is entertaining for fans of theater, comic books, and yesteryear. This live performance of stories are pulled from vintage, mid-century romance comic books, but these aren’t heart-warming tales – these are the comic book love stories that were banned for being too racy! Along with multi-media comic book performances, the evening includes comedic acts, prizes and the finest live music. Spend the evening with Captured Aural Phantasy Theater for naughty, uncensored entertainment!
The FORBIDDEN LOVE SHOW is the first in their new Seduction of the Innocent series, monthly shows that highlight comics once deemed harmful to kids. The series is in anticipation of the 60th anniversary of the Senate hearings of April 21, 1954, which damned the comic book industry. CAPT will be re-staging this historic event with a special theatrical performance later in the spring. In the meantime, get the back story and enjoy this “bad influence” at El Cid. All the cool kids are doin’ it.
