BWW Reviews: Stage Door Inc.'s EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL  is a Bloody and Cheesy AffairBWW Reviews: Stage Door Inc.'s EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL is a Bloody and Cheesy Affair
by Nyderah Williams - Oct 27, 2014

EVIL DEAD is a large campy affair. After all, the musical borrows its story, characters and general demeanor from a B-film franchise. Intentionally cheesy and over-the-top funny, it relies heavily on self-referential humor and pop culture references. (more...)

by Jeanmarie Simpson - Oct 24, 2014

It's really interesting to me in any kind of Shakespeare how people speak in definites, when there's no way to know them. This one seems to be one that actors hold very near and dear to their hearts. Some people are into the superstition and it's bad luck to say the title, but to me, it's just a frickin' word. It's funny to me. (more...)

BWW Reviews: EVIL DEAD -THE MUSICAL Blasts Austin with the BoomstickBWW Reviews: EVIL DEAD -THE MUSICAL Blasts Austin with the Boomstick
by Michelle Hache - Sep 23, 2014

I was absolutely blown away with just how much I loved this show...and it wasn't just because of the memorable one-liners that the audience all waited for with baited breath. In this comedic take on the 1980s horror franchise, characters and demons sing and dance to catchy songs written specifically for the musical. And, as in the films, Ash is there to dish out his various one-liners and fight the never-ending demons. This was seriously one of the best nights of theatre I've experienced in Austin. (more...)
