The best way to describe Beyond Brookledge is that it's as if somebody fit the L.A. Opera and Burning Man into the Magic Castle, and then had a three-day slumber party. This year, Beyond Brookledge, held May 20-22 at the Mission Inn in Riverside, featured round-the-clock entertainment. There were dime museums, freak shows, singers, piercers, demons, mermaids, the giant puzzle, blue men, foot Jenga, skeletons, ventriloquism, opera, full-moon howling and much more. Capping out at just 50 tickets, Beyond Brookledge is one of those once-a-year events that seems impossible but instead is impossibly fun.
As Jason Weisberger of Boing Boing said, “Beyond Brookledge is an extension of Erika Larsen's amazing Brookledge Follies. The follies are a single evening's performance at a very small, private stage in Los Angeles. Tickets are never for sale, seating is nearly impossible to come by and the show is over far, far too quickly. Beyond Brookledge is an amped-up, immersive, three-day version of Erika's magical evening.”
