This fall will see the return of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County , the Southern gothic stage musical on which John Mellencamp collaborated with author Stephen King and producer T Bone Burnett , touring a variety of theaters across North America. The performances will get under way with a November 8-9 engagement in Orono, Maine, and will run through a December 5 show in San Francisco.
The production, which premiered in April 2012 at Atlanta's Alliance Theatre, tells the story of a tragedy in rural Mississippi that claims the lives of two brothers and a young girl in the late '60s and how the incident haunts a town during the ensuing years. The show features a cast of 15 actors that's accompanied by a live four-piece band made up of members of Mellencamp's touring group.
Among the many major cities the Ghost Brothers of Darkland County production will visit are Toronto; Philadelphia; Washington, D.C.; Baltimore; Boston; New York City; Detroit; Chicago; St. Louis; Denver; Phoenix; and Los Angeles. Tickets for most dates go on sale on Friday, June 20, via AXS.com.
A previously touring version of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County hit the road during the fall of 2013, mainly visiting theaters in the Midwestern U.S. In addition, a soundtrack album featuring performances by a variety of well-known singers and actors was released in June of last year.
