RadioTheatre, the innovative broadcast-inspired troupe, is now a decade old, and there’s no better occasion to celebrate its anniversary than its signature H.P. Lovecraft Festival. Short stories by the macabre master are brought to the stage during this fall theater standard — resurrected, adapted into eerily atmospheric productions, and performed in repertory. This year’s selections include The Call of the Cthulhu, about a scholar who goes in search of an elusive beast that’s described as “an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature” combined; The Shadow over Innsmouth, in which the residents of a derelict New England town practice human sacrifice to appease underwater demons; and the almost Men In Black–like From Beyond, concerning aliens who live among us. Experience the spookiest, weirdest, and cultiest stuff onstage this October.
Mondays-Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Starts: Oct. 2. Continues through Oct. 12, 2014
