Staff Reviews


Despite its title, Joyland is not a treatise on existential malaise, or maybe it is depending how you feel about unrequited first love, noir stories and carnivals. It is a breezy tale well told that includes a dark and stormy night, a murder pleading to be solved, a serial killer and a lot of cool carny culture stuff including the Talk. It is also a Stephen King story and that means the haunted funhouse is haunted, the psychic fortune teller is psychic and the boy with muscular dystrophy has the vision. So all you coneys step up to the chump board and give it a shot - it can lift you up like a Ferris wheel, where the air is rare.

— Richard, Pittsburgh
