Dusk! How you liking the rain girl?
The Edinburgh Fringe parody of the hit Twilight Saga film franchise has released an exclusive first look at their new streaming edition, filmed live in front of a sold-out audience in Edinburgh.
The musical, which quickly gained attention after clips of a Pennsylvania workshop production hit social media, has already racked up more than 6 million likes on TikTok alone.
Co-written by Morgan Kennedy and Daniel Ruffing, the parody reimagines Edward and Bella as Edwin and Bia, with beloved characters from the cult franchise coming to life through a series of inside-baseball references, in addition to more open parody and satire.
For just $15, audiences around the world can now stream the musical ahead of its digital access premiere screening in the 2024 Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia.
