Bookshop Theater: A little “Misery” at Barnes and Noble
In 2011 Norfolk, Virginia’s The Generic Theater presented “a thrilling stage adaptation” of the Stephen King novel Misery.
As part of the promotional festivities one of their actresses went to the local Barnes and Noble for a little publicity stunt.
‘Crazy Chick Flips Out in Barnes & Noble’ is how they titled it and what we get is a “Misery” infused encounter with an unsuspecting (?) employee.
The actress is channeling the character Annie Wilkes (think Kathy Bates in the film version) from the novel and is asking after a novel by Paul Sheldon, who is the protagonist in Misery.
Warning to booksellers: This video is completely cringeworthy.
