BWW Reviews: Sutter Street Theatre's EVIL DEAD THE MUSICALBWW Reviews: Sutter Street Theatre's EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL
by Meg Masterson (Sacramento)

(10/21/2014) - The show itself is hilarious - extremely campy and entirely self-aware, with songs including "All of the Men in my Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons" and "Do the Necronomicon." Groan-worthy (but hilarious) puns pepper the script, and funny lyrics and musical devices keep the action rolling.

BWW Reviews: THREE MINUTE HEROES, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, October 20 2014BWW Reviews: THREE MINUTE HEROES, Belgrade Theatre Coventry, October 20 2014
by Jenny Antill (UK Regional)

(10/21/2014) - If you are a fan of ska music, there is much to like about the Belgrade Theatre's production of Three Minute Heroes. Dubbed as the 2 Tone Musical, the production follows fictional characters trying to make it in the music industry. With the band consisting of a diverse group of young people, 2 Tone was the appropriate record company that they were trying to win over. There was also an ongoing racist battle during 1979-1981 when the show is set. Coventry decided to put on a benefit in 1981 to pay tribute to a Sikh man who was killed in the city as part of the racist protests and that really was when the ska music family came together to make a difference.
