MANSON | family valUes

MANSON | family valUeS is based on the lives of Charles Manson and his followers during the events leading up to and following the ritual murders of actress Sharon Tate and six others during the summer of 1969. Created in the unique style of The LIDA Project, MANSON | family valUeS offers a bizarre and wickedly eerie look into ‘the Family’ that changed our definition of evil forever and spawned America’s first pop-culture media villain. Built from actual events and transcripts.

MANSON | family valUeS embodies the spirit of all that live theater should. It is bold, difficult and occasionally jaw-dropping.” – John Moore, The Denver Post
