Evil Dead -- the musical?!

Jeff, alert member of the Horror in Film and Literature group, forwarded this story on Evil Dead the Musical. It has been workshopped in Toronto and is heading for off-Broadway this October.

I am so there! Can't you just imagine shouting along with the audience, "Chainsaw!" Will the tree have a song of thwarted passion? "Do the Necronomicon?" It'll be the club remix that defines the fall season.

And in an embarrassment of riches, Hilary "Rhymes with Orange" Price is workshopping her play Santacide at Smith College Monday night. Oooh! Sounds like a lot of fun.

It's good to be back on the East Coast!

From the ticket purchase site (tix are a steep $61 but it's Evil Dead!!):

Important Notice
The first two rows of the orchestra are the “Splatter Zone." Patrons in the “Splatter Zone” should be prepared to have a bloody good time…and dress accordingly.

Oh boy!

Sounds like a GWAR concert...

I love Evil Dead's one of my favorite movies!

Hmmm, is this the excuse for a "group" trip that we've all been looking for?

C. Margery Kempe said...

Yes, yes! That way I can get my New England friends and my Horror friends all together in one place (and watch the sparks fly! -- how many explosions will that confluence cause?)

And yeah, GWAR is *exactly* what I thought of, too.
