Twin Peaks fans from all over gathered in Columbus, Ohio recently for a 3 day dream event. Mike McGraner, promoter of The Director Series, was able to schedule both Sheryl Lee and Ray Wise to attend 4 screenings of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me that weekend, each screening complete with a question and answer session, photo and autograph opportunities and many other surprises that made for an event nobody in attendance will ever forget. I’m speaking from experience here, having attended the Saturday evening screening that weekend.
Based on the overwhelming success of those events and attendance from fans all over not only the United States but worldwide, Mike McGraner has teamed up with Michael Pérez and Samantha Osborn Entertainment to take the show on the road. The Beyond The Black Lodge Tour (2019/2020) was announced yesterday, promising Twin Peaks fans a screening of a film and members of the cast of Twin Peaks on hand for similar festivities as what we enjoyed in Columbus. The first event was announced for Detroit, Michigan on 11/9/2019, with both Sheryl Lee and Ray Wise as the featured guests. More cities and dates are expected to be announced soon.
Prior to the tour being officially announced yesterday, an event in Arkansas, the Fayetteville AR Comic Show, is also being promoted by Michael Pérez Entertainment and so far has Sheryl Lee, Dana Ashbrook, Harry Goaz, Kimmy Robertson, James Marshall, Sherilyn Fenn, Eric Da Re, Gary Hershberger & more announced. Could this be an indication of other Twin Peaks stars to join the Beyond The Black Lodge tour? Only time will tell.
We may not know if we’ll ever get a Twin Peaks Season 4 but the spirit of Twin Peaks is alive and well. This tour will provide fans an opportunity to meet each other, cast members and enjoy an experience like no other.
