THE TORSO BOOK CLUB is a short-term installation, or “pop up” theater production with limited
tickets, will be held online via ZOOM. All proceeds will go to specific local Cleveland Artists who
have been affected by the economic devastation that Covid-19 has had on the Arts Community.
Reservations are Pay What You Want, with a $5 minimum. There are only four audience positions per
performance, with four performances per night.
THE TORSO BOOK CLUB: True Crime is one of the highest watched genres in all entertainment,
and Cleveland Local History has one of the country’s most notorious serial killers with The Mad
Butcher of Kingsbury Run, aka the Cleveland Torso Killer. Throw in famed Detective Eliot Ness, and
this book club has a lot to discuss. After watching a production of WanderLust, Carter forms a book
club to discuss the production and the graphic novel TORSO by Brian Michael Bendis. With Covid-19
social distancing mandates across the world, a book club is the perfect distraction – but the participants
find they need more than murder in these tough times.
To maximize the audience experience within Zoom, ticketing is limited to four “attendees” per performance. We can accommodate up to two audience members per ticket while sharing a screen together, but ask that anyone doing this consider contributing a higher amount, as the proceeds will go to support local Cleveland artists affected by loss of work due to Covid-19.
