Toronto's long-running hit show, Evil Dead: The Musical, begins its very first North American tour next week and the production is scheduled to run in Chicago September 23rd through October 12th at the Broadway Playhouse.
The live stage show blends all three of Sam Raimi's films in the cult series: The Evil Dead (1981), Evil Dead II (1987), and Army of Darkness (1992). The story follows a group of five college kids who visit an abandoned cabin deep within the woods, and, as you may know, unwittingly unleash a crapload of evil forces that quickly turn them into demons. Our beloved, awkward hero, “Ash,” must step up and deal with this horrifying invasion like any chainsaw-wielding protagonist would do.
Fans familiar with the series know exactly what to expect–goofy comedy, flying limbs, smack-talking demons, gore, and lots (and lots) of blood. In addition to the campy tone from the films, the entire production is set to music. A few songs include “Look Who's Evil Now” and “All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons.” (Easily found on YouTube in the event one desires to memorize ahead of time in order to sing along.)
SPLATTER ZONE TICKETS: Gorehounds may prefer to pay extra for the exciting seats that will allow them to be covered in blood. Amount of spraying, splatter, and drenching varies, but these VIP seats will indeed get increasingly wet as the performance goes on! PONCHOS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.
Venue located at Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place, 175 East Chestnut Street, Chicago, IL 60611. *Possibly inappropriate for children under 12 years old. Strong language and gore. Performance runs 2 hours with an intermission. For information call 312-977-1700.
