Evil Dead: the Musical

The hilarious, record-breaking musical takes all the elements of the cult classic horror films and combines them to make one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college friends spend the weekend in an abandoned cabin in the woods after accidentally unleashing an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), to save the day.

Audience members sitting in the “splatter zone” run the risk of leaving the theater covered in fake blood as the production incorporates some fun ‘real-life’ effects during certain scenes. In addition to some dismembered limbs, demons telling bad jokes, and catchy tunes (“Look Who’s Evil Now”, “All the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons”), the show features a saucy combination of wit and sexual innuendo that keeps audiences laughing out loud.

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.
