CAPT presents: The Taboo Tales of Terror Show April 6 (Sponsored)

April marks a new month of the Captured Aural Phantasy Theater having a show at the El Cid.

The April 6th show, The Taboo Tales of Terror, features acts based on banned 50's horror comics. Do you have what it takes to sit down and enjoy a show based on these creepy tales?

Don't forget about the new Phantasy Faire where local vendors will be selling geeky goods before the performance.

Eye Spy LA has a shining review that starts with

 "I wanted Dick. I was a fool for Dick. All I ever wanted was more of Dick.”

April 6th press release:

Witness vintage tales from the moldering crypt of comic books uncensored and LIVE! Captured Aural Phantasy Theater presents the TABOO TALES OF TERROR show at the historic El Cid for 1 night only Sunday, April 6! We will be showcasing live performances of stories pulled from vintage, mid-century horror comic books presented in our signature variety show/ old radio show style. These aren't heart-warming tales  these are the comic book horror stories that were banned in the 50's for being too terrifying, too violent and too much! 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!

NEW this season shop before the show at our Phantasy Faire! Join local vendors on the El Cid patio and puruse everything geek and chic in our version of a nerdy farmer's market. The night begins with El Cid's brand new tapas menu, superb cocktails and shopping. Enjoy a variety show, music and booze!

 press release continued:

The TABOO TALES OF TERROR show is another in our 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. We will be re-staging this historic event with a special theatrical performance later in the spring. In the meantime, get the backstory and enjoy our “bad influence” at El Cid. All the cool kids are doin’ it.
