“Imagine the overwhelming cosmic dread of HP Lovecraft, served up in a style not entirely dissimilar to BBC Look North. Hypnotic and darkly funny.” -The Guardian
“A favorite for anyone who wants a good scare on a long drive or a lonely night.” - The Culture Trip
“With its uncanny blend of the macabre and the mundane, the news out of Night Vale sounds like what might occur if Stephen King or David Lynch was a guest producer at your local public radio station.” - The New York Times
“Welcome to Night Vale regularly delivers a mix of pitch-black humor and deadpan chills.” - The Los Angeles Times
The creators of Welcome to Night Vale - one of the most downloaded podcasts in the world - have announced the return of their wildly popular live show to Europe and the U.K. in October 2017. Following last year’s sell-out tour for Ghost Stories, which included London’s Palladium theatre, Night Vale is set to return to the UK and Europe this Autumn, complete with a brand new script entitled All Hail.
Like the podcast, the live production of Night Vale brings stories of the surreal desert town of Night Vale to the stage as a fully-realized live show delivering rich, nuanced drama in the form of a community radio show hosted by Cecil Palmer(played by Cecil Baldwin).
With guest stars and a live musical All Hail appeals to uninitiated audiences as well as to dedicated fans of the podcast, who hang onto Cecil’s every word. This unique script works equally well as a standalone show and as a complement to the constantly evolving narrative of the podcast.
