Enter the twisted world of Edgar Allan Poe's The Masque of the Red Death in this rock musical adaptation. With an eerie score by award-winning composer Tony Wayne, this rock experience is a haunting exploration of death, disease, and the darkness of the human soul.

Set in a decaying castle during a deadly plague, Masque of the Red Death follows the depraved Prince Prospero as he throws a lavish masked ball to escape the horrors of the outside world. But as the night wears on and the revelers succumb to their fears and desires, a mysterious figure in a red mask appears, unleashing a terrifying plague that will test the limits of the prince's decadent lifestyle.

With a talented band, The Masque of the Red Death is a visceral and stunning evening of music that will transport you to the world of Poe’s classic.
