Evil Dead - The Musical?

I think this has been around for a minute but it's the first I've heard of it. Sam Raimi's Evil Dead has been turned into a musical. From

During spring break, five college students break into an abandoned cabin in the woods and unleash evil spirits. All hell breaks loose, and the fun soon ensues with zombies...and show tunes! Written by George Reinblatt, with music by Frank Cipolla, Christopher Bond, Melissa Morris, and George Reinblatt, Evil Dead: The Musical delights with such tunes as "What the F*** Was That," "Bit Part Demon," "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons," and the Rocky Horror Picture Show-inspired "Do the Necronomicon."

Blood features prominently in this show. Audience members sitting in the front three rows are guaranteed to get splattered with plenty of plasma. White t-shirts with the slogan "Splatter Zone Survivor" are available for purchase as keepsakes.

Evil Dead: The Musical comes to the Beck Center after an enormously successful 400-performance run in Toronto. "Maxim" calls it, "One musical you'll actually want to see." And The "New York Times" says it's "the next Rocky Horror Picture Show."

I'm not a fan of musicals but even I may give this one a shot!


  1. I never got the chance to go see this in Toronto, but I know a number of friends who did and got soaked with blood in the front row.

  2. Yeah, I read they sell white shirts at the show too!

  3. i'm in the beck center production. blood comes with your ticket - t-shirts that you can get splashed that say "i survived the splatter zone" are extra. ;)
    i hope to see you there!
