Ghost Brothers of Darkland Country 

In the mood for a star-studded weekend at the theatre (a.k.a. indoor where it's warm)? The southern gothic, supernatural musical Ghost Brothers of Darkland County—produced by Stephen King, John Mellencamp, and T Bone Burnett— will be at the SHN Curran Theatre (445 Geary Street) on December 5 and 6. Actor-writer-producer Billy Burke (The Twilight Saga) and actress-writer-singer Gina Gershon (Killer Joe, House of Versace, Boeing, Boeing) are playing the lead roles of Joe and Monique McCandless in the haunting tale of fraternal love, lust, jealousy, and revenge.
