In the book, Sophie possess a certain kind of magical power - she makes things real by saying them. She can lay spells just by saying them. When she made hats, and she told a hat that it would make a rich young man fall in love with it, a rich young man fell in love with the woman who bought it. When she told a hat it would make some woman look beautiful, everyone knew the mayor’s wife looked positively radiant in it. It’s what drew the Witch to her hat shop in the first place. When she cursed out a bucket of plant food, it turned to potent weed killer. When she told herself she might as well be an old woman, when she told herself she was doomed to fail, when she told herself she was plain and boring and no one would ever notice her, no one did.
When Howl tried to break the spell on Sophie, and he tried many times, he always failed. Not because his magic was less powerful than the Witch’s, but because it was less powerful than Sophie’s.
New York City we’re having a release party in you! On October 8th, we’re celebrating the release of “Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!” at the critically acclaimed art installation “Sleep No More” at The McKittrick Hotel. That’s right this isn’t any ol’ CD release party, there are theatrics involved! (What kind of Panic! At The Disco party would it be without theatrics, huh?) If you haven’t seen ”Sleep No More” before, it’s an interactive re-imagining of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” as an art installation that is very eloquently explained in this New York Times review. Following “Sleep No More”, we will play an intimate performance. There are only 125 tickets available for $105 and only 25 tickets to just our performance for $30, get them here. Oh yeah, it’s 21+ due to the graphic nature of “Sleep No More”, sorry children.
Preorder “Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die!” on iTunes for $7.99 (limited time only!) or through our webstore.
Who is going to be at this intimate show? THIS GIRL RIGHT HERE. OH YEAH~
