Ghost Brothers of Darkland County

Written by best-selling author Stephen King with music by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer John Mellencamp, and musical direction by Grammy Award-winning T-Bone Burnett, the southern gothic, supernatural musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County comes to Massey Hall on its single Canadian date.

A haunting tale of fraternal love, lust, jealousy and revenge, the staging of Ghost Brothers is an amalgam of different styles: old fashioned, resembling an old-style radio show, and unique and modern in its interactive use of storytelling, music and singing. The show will be performed by an ensemble cast of 15 actors and a four-piece live band, comprised of members of John Mellencamp’s band.
