"Where were you the night The Gaybird Steamer ran off her tracks?"                                                       


Dandy Darkly's All Aboard! is a Southern Gothic tall tale as told by the peculiar characters there that tragic Halloween night; from the little boy chased by the ghosts that still haunt her as an adult to the cruel Colonel buried in his bunker, tinkering with his sinister toys.

The show is a raucous uprooting of Deep South shame served alongside a heaping helping of sizzling social satire and howling humor. Enjoy a dripping earful of Southern Gothic grotesquery: creepy country robots, African spider gods, beauty shop gossip and inbred family freakery. All Aboard for Dandy's most beautifully batshit creation yet!

Dandy Darkly is a preeminent American storyteller and a most resplendent raconteur of the international Fringe Festival performance circuit. Dandy infuses his surprisingly contemporary ghost stories with a dose of social activism and pop cultural nuance and regales it all accompanied by a nonstop soundscape of pre-recorded music composed by long time collaborators Adam Tendler (piano), Bryce Edwards (bass), Carlos Espinosa, Jr. (saxophone), Jeffrey Underhill (guitar, banjo) and Rachel Blumberg (drums, ukulele). Ian Bjorklund returns as director. The show is peppered with eclectic sound effects to create an utterly captivating theatrical experience that must be seen to be believed.                                                             


Critically acclaimed. Award winning.  

                                                  Simply go see Dandy.
