Evil Dead - The Musical, winner of the 2007 Dora Audience Choice Award as Toronto’s favorite show, unleashes its mayhem and fun at Mesa Arts Center.
Evil Dead - The Musical, the hilarious, record-breaking Canadian musical (created by George Reinblatt, Frank Cipolla, Melissa Morris and Christopher Bond) tells the outrageous story of five college friends spending the weekend in an abandoned cabin in the woods after accidentally unleashing an evil force that turns them all into demons.
The original production, based on the Evil Dead film franchise, opened 11 years Toronto and enjoyed an immensely popular run, with 150 productions eventually presented in cities around the world with sold-out houses and rave reviews from critics.
“Evil Dead - The Musical is the most fun you can have at the theatre. It’s a show everyone loves – even if you don’t love musicals,” said Corey Ross, president of Starvox Entertainment. “Since being called ‘the next Rocky Horror Show’ by The New York Times, the show is primed to tour, so all can enjoy the evil fun.”
Those familiar with Evil Dead - The Musical will remember that audience members sitting in the designated “Splatter Zone” get 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 showfeatures a saucy combination of wit and sexual innuendo that keeps audiences laughing out loud.
