Ghost Brothers of Darkland County TICKETS GOING ON SALE MONDAY
The Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, GA recently announced the hotly anticipated spring 2012 world premiere Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a chilling new musical with music and lyrics by John Mellencamp and book by Stephen King.

The project, more than a decade in the making, will have individual tickets go on sale Monday, July 11th through the Alliance Theater's website. The production is scheduled for April 4 through May 13th, 2012.

One of the world's most popular authors and one of America’s most honored musicians have created a riveting Southern gothic musical fraught with mystery, tragedy, and ghosts of the past, along with a roots and blues-tinged score that is sure to leave audiences asking for more. Alliance Artistic Director Susan V. Booth directs, with musical direction provided by legendary producer T Bone Burnett.

Here is an overview of the story: In the tiny town of Lake Belle Reve, Mississippi in 1957, a terrible tragedy took the lives of two brothers and a beautiful young girl. During the next forty years, the events of that night became the stuff of local legend. But legend is often just another word for lie. Joe McCandless knows what really happened; he saw it all. The question is whether or not he can bring himself to tell the truth in time to save his own troubled sons, and whether the ghosts left behind by an act of violence will help him – or tear the McCandless family apart forever.

Stephen King recently spoke about the project at the Alliance Theatre. You can watch part of the interview on YouTube. Stay tuned to Mellencamp.com for more details on the project as we get closer to the premiere!

Not yet, those details will be coming, hopefully in a few months. It should be released in time for the start of the show in Atlanta.

Hey, Brad, looks like we may be bumping into each other. Haven't seen you since we worked the Savannah show doing postcards for the W & M Tour.
