    The Paranormal Turns Pedantic in ‘The Twilight Zone’ Adaptation

    Matt Wolf

    December 14, 2017:

    LONDON — If ever it felt appropriate to revisit “The Twilight Zone,” that moment is now. We live in strange, disorienting times, but without a Rod Serling, the debonair mastermind behind the CBS television series, to set the scene for us as he did so trenchantly more than 50 years ago.

    So you can practically hear a collective purr of delight when those famous four opening notes of the series’s theme song are heard at the very end of the American writer Anne Washburn’s stage adaptation of “The Twilight Zone,” which opened Tuesday at the Almeida Theater in north London (through Jan. 27).

    What an audience will make of the preceding two and a half hours may depend on its willingness to let a sermon invade the spook house. There was nearly always a civilizing message of sorts underpinning each episode in the TV series, which referenced other realms to say something about the troublesome one inhabited by humans.
