This hilarious show takes all the elements of the cult classic films The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darknessand combines them into one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time.
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) and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes ... and all to music.
The songs in the show are completely off the wall. Titles like "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons" and "What the F**k Was That?" will have audiences rolling in their seats and screaming for more and more blood.
This show has fun with the horror genre and, in doing so, appeals to a wide audience. It's the only show with a "Splatter Zone"—a section of the audience that gets covered in fake blood. And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects and awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical is unlike any show you've ever seen.
While the Evil Dead films are the definition of cult movies, as a stage show, Evil Dead: The Musical has become a cult sensation of its own. The show played off-Broadway in New York, has broken records in Toronto, has won awards in Korea and has had more than 200 productions mounted across the globe. And because this show appeals to both the fans of the films and the new audience who loves it purely as a stage show, theatres who put on Evil Dead The Musical are amazed by the audience response.
