Photo Flash: Evil Dead The Musical At Studio Theatre
A cabin in the woods. The Book of the Dead. Zombies. Aggressive trees. Sexy college students. A wayward hand. Lots of catchy show tunes. Beck Center presents the Cleveland premiere of Evil Dead: The Musical in the Studio Theater May 8 through June 14. Sam Raimi's cult classic 1980s films are brought to life in this campy show. Show times are 8:00 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00 p.m. Sundays.
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 row are guaranteed to get splattered with plenty of plasma. White t-shirts with the slogan "Splatter Zone Survivor" are available for purchase as keepsakes.
Tickets are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors (65 and older), and $17 for students (22 and under with ID). An additional $3 service fee per ticket is applied at the time of purchase. Preview night on Thursday, May 7, is $10 with general admission seating. Group discounts are available for parties of 13 or more. To reserve tickets, call the Beck Center box office at 216.521.2540 ext. 10 or visit www.beckcenter.org. For group sales, contact Linda Hefner at ext. 29.
