"This year’s Hallowe’en Spooktacular will be the last show run in the original Bob Baker Marionette Theater. Our Hallowe’en Spooktacular is a family friendly and terrifyingly fun hour-long revue show done in traditional Bob Baker “theater in the round” style. Over one hundred spirited puppets rally together to unearth everything on strings; from the xylo- bone playing ghouls, to the soulful laments of Dracula and Vampira and a bone rattling soiree of glow-in-the-dark skeletons, flitting the night away in their secret moonlit Cabaret. Bob Baker’s Hallowe’en Spooktacular is sure to whisk you away to “the place where imagination dwells” - and sometimes, lurks..."

"For the past few years, horror and Halloween enthusiasts near and far have traveled to meet where all kindred spirits may lie.

"SILENCE! The Musical is a bawdy tribute to the iconic film "The Silence of the Lambs". Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch serial killer Buffalo Bill. This laugh-out-loud naughty satire features a chorus of singing and dancing lambs, Buffalo Bill gleefully dancing a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin and even Dr. Lecter singing about the life he’d like to lead outside the prison walls."

Our annual Halloween mash-up of opera and cinema returns to the spectacular Theatre at Ace Hotel with filmmaker Carl Theodor Dreyer’s surreal 1932 masterwork, one of the most unsettling vampire movies ever made. Composer Joby Talbot creates a compelling new score for chamber orchestra and singers, performed live with a rare screening of this cinematic gem, underestimated for decades but now regarded as an important landmark of the horror genre."
