I thought I would share a few pictures from Rubbed Out at Ruby’s, the interactive murder mystery to be presented by LiFT Theatre Company at the Overlook Mansion in Little Falls, NY this Saturday. We had rehearsal Sunday, to which some of us wore our costumes. So I guess this is kind of a preview.
This one turned out kind of blurry, but here I am, as Ruby Van Rensselaer, wealthy socialite, investor and lush. The basement of the Overlook will become Ruby’s Rathskeller, the hottest speakeasy in Little Falls. Ruby does not run the place, but she fronted George Raffles the money to open it and he named it after her in gratitude.
And this is Mavis LaLonde, George’s girlfriend. She runs the bordello upstairs from the speakeasy.
Incidentally, those are fake cigarettes. We’re not going to blow smoke in anybody’s eyes. Not literal smoke, at any rate. As for figurative smoke up, you know, other body parts… well, that is a vulgar expression. I don’t think Ruby would use an expression like that.
Rubbed Out at Ruby’s will be this Saturday, Feb. 25 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Overlook Mansion, 55 Douglas St., Little Falls. Tickets are $25, available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2840239. For more information you can call the Overlook at 315-823-1907, or you can visit their Facebook page.
