The nationally regarded Fulton Theatre is proud to present, Wait Until Dark, October 10 through October 27, with previews October 8 and 9. A suspenseful Halloween treat for every thrill seeker!
A mysterious doll mistakenly smuggled into the country possesses secrets that puts a young couple in serious danger, especially the blind homemaker. Based on the acclaimed film starring Audrey Hepburn, this cult classic will have you on the edge of your seat, minute after pulsating minute. Left home alone and to her own devices, Suzy is forced to defend herself against three con men, who are after the doll and its goods. A clever cat-and-mouse game of deception becomes more dangerous when the doll disappears! The game takes a drastic turn when the lights go out!
Wait Until Dark opened on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theater in 1966. The original production starred Lee Remick as Suzy, which earned her a Tony Nomination.
