Charles Ludlam (1943 – 1987), playwright, director, and actor, founded The Ridiculous Theatrical Company in NYC in 1967. He often appeared in his own plays, in female roles. As a writer he was prolific, but his most popular play by far was “The Mystery of Irma Vep.” This 1992 CD honored the 25th anniversary of the company with songs from a selection of its shows.
Charles Ludlum’s lover, Everett Quinton, sings lead on “The Conqueror.”
He took over the company after Ludlam’s death.
