Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, the world-premiere musical thriller by horror writer Stephen King and Grammy Award-winning musician John Mellencamp, officially opened April 11 at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta. Tony Award winner Shuler Hensley, Tony nominee Emily Skinner and Justin Guarini star.

Here's how the work is billed: "In the tiny town of Lake Belle Reve, Mississippi in 1957, a terrible tragedy took the lives of two brothers and a beautiful young girl. During the next 40 years, the events of that night became the stuff of local legend. But legend is often just another word for lie. Joe McCandless knows what really happened; he saw it all. The question is whether or not he can bring himself to tell the truth in time to save his own troubled sons, and whether the ghosts left behind by an act of violence will help him — or tear the McCandless family apart forever."

The company includes Jeremy Aggers as Ensemble, Peter Albrink as Jack McCandless, Kylie Brown as Anna Wicklow, Lori Beth Edgeman as Ensemble, Kate Ferber as Jenna, Justin Guarini as Drake McCandless, Shuler Hensley as Joe McCandless, Gwen Hughes as Ensemble, Joe Jung as Newt/Ensemble, Lucas Kavner as Frank McCandless, Joe Knezevich as Record Company Man/Ensemble, Jake La Botz as The Shape, Rob Lawhon as Ensemble, Royce Mann as Young Joe, Christopher L. Morgan as Dan Coker, Emily Skinner as Monique McCandless, Travis Smith as Andy McCandless, Dale Watson as Deejay/Zydeco Cowboy/Ensemble and Ryan Wotherspoon as Ensemble.
