Evil Dead — The Musical
You either love it or you hate it — but those who love Evil Dead, Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic horror film, really love it. In fact, they love it so much, they made a little-known musical based on it. And guess what? They’re in town!
Described on their website as “the only musical in the world with a splatter zone”, this hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films, Evil Dead 1, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness then combines them to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time.
For those unfamiliar with the Evil Dead trilogy, the synopsis goes a little something like this: Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero, played by the legendary Bruce Campbell in the original three movies), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons are telling bad jokes. Bruce Campbell kicks some serious demon-ass.
If you aren’t much into gore and/or cheesy 80’s horror flicks, it may not be your style, but once again, those who love it, really love it. But then again, as the web page says, “You don’t need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show. You don’t need to be a fan of horror to love this show. You don’t even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show. As long as you like having fun… this show is for you”.
