On October 19th, a pre-Broadway stage production of “The Exorcist” will make its New England debut. This is the first of 11 concerts running through Halloween.

We chatted with the actors and crew about translating the legendary horror title, which was first a novel, then a film, and to this new form – a live performance.

“It’s a great combination of the stuff that everybody is familiar with from the movie,” said Molly Dubovy, who plays Regan in The Exorcist.

“Nonetheless, it draws significant inspiration from the book. While it incorporates the expected frightening aspects of a horror film, it also delves deeply into the character’s inner struggles, offering a more humane perspective. The movie intricately explores the relationships among the characters amidst the surrounding chaos and horror.”

Keep in mind that this is The Exorcist when determining the appropriate audience for the program.

This is an adaption of William Peter Blatty’s novel about a possessed child, a mother desperate to save her, a priest on the edge of losing his faith, and an anthropologist who, in a manner, delivers salvation to all.

The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty remains one of the most horrifying, startling, and controversial novels ever written, more than 50 years after its first publication!

This disturbing and controversial new theatrical adaption by celebrated playwright John Pielmeier, inspired by a true account of demonic possession, brings to life the conflict between good and evil, faith and doubt!

  • Duration: 2 hours
  • John Pielmeier wrote the piece.
  • Based on William Peter Blatty’s novel
  • Elaine Bard directed the film.
