Kickass Trailers: "Legion"

We're taking a different route with this blog. Being the theatre geek that I am, I want to endorse Legion--a play based on William Peter Blatty's novel of the same name. Legion, a sequel to Blatty's highly successful novel The Exorcist, was adapted into the 1990 horror film The Exorcist III. Previews begin at the WildClaw Theatre in Chicago on March 12 with an opening on March 16.

From the looks of their Web site, WildClaw Theatre puts on some creepy-ass shows.
