Holmes (1861-1896), and fictional scientist Victor Frankenstein. Featuring original music and sound design by Paul Carbonara, Worlds Fair Inn is a tragically funny expedition into the subconscious of three men and their tragic personal lives. Performances of Worlds Fair Inn begin on September 30 at Axis Theatre (1 Sheridan Square, Manhattan) for a limited run through October 23, 2021. Tickets are on sale now at http://axiscompany.org/.
