New Type of Halloween Entertainment Comes to New England

New, alternative theatre production company called VitalSaenz and its inaugural show going up this October in Lowell, MA!

Online PR News – 28-September-2021 – Lowell, MA – Once described as “amoral, “graphic” and “gruesome,” this event will be a totally new experience for the Halloween afficionado. This type of entertainment hasn’t been seen in New England before. For those who have tried the haunted houses, the hayrides, the corn mazes, and are thirsting for something new, “A Crime in a Madhouse” promises to provide the stomach-churning thrills that are perfect for Halloween.

Young Louise has been incarcerated in the asylum at Saint Léger, but is now declared well enough to return home. She is set to leave in the morning. But she is terrified to spend one more night there. Her roommates, the woman from Normandy and the hunchback, have been eyeing her strangely. And what have they been planning with the one-eyed invalid who rooms next door? The sister in charge seems unconcerned. The doctor is more interested in Louise for…who knows? What will happen to Louise if she must remain in the madhouse for one. More. Night?

“A Crime in a Madhouse” was one of the original entertainments presented by a theater in Paris at the turn of the 20th century, called The Grand Guignol. Internationally famous for their shows that caused grown men to faint and women to vomit in the aisles, The Grand Guignol thrived for about 50 years and then closed its doors forever. Their shows were salacious and gratuitously violent, but also tense and nerve-jangling. Some of the original scripts they developed, including this one, were co-authored by Alfred Binet, one of the fathers of modern psychology.

VitalSaenz Productions brings you an experience that is not for the faint of heart. At a lean 40 minutes, the event is the perfect part of a night of scary Halloween fun. Presented in a brand-new event space on the fifth floor of the historic Mill No. 5 building in Lowell, MA, this diversion provides a welcome alternative to the crowds of tourists in Salem. Get a group of friends together and come join the terrifying fun…if you dare. You can enjoy the shops at Mill No. 5 Thursday through Saturday until 8pm. There’s a convenient parking garage next door, and Lowell has much to offer in the way of restaurants and bars. Shows are Thursday through Saturday nights and Sunday afternoons from October 21-31. Do not miss this new
tradition of the Halloween season.
