The 5 & Dime, Vanity Furs and Jacksonville Chiropractic & Acupuncture present EVIL DEAD: The Musical The 5 & Dime, Vanity Furs and Jacksonville Chiropractic & Acupuncture present EVIL DEAD: The Musical
by BWW News Desk on October 02, 2017 in Jacksonville

This hilarious live stage show takes all the elements of the cult classic films, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them for one of the craziest theatrical experiences of all time. Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It's all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes and all to music. The songs in the show are completely off the wall as well. Titles like All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons and What the F**k was That? has had audiences rolling in their seats, and screaming for more and more blood. (more...)

THE ADDAMS FAMILY Come to to Alhambra in Time for Halloween THE ADDAMS FAMILY Come to to Alhambra in Time for Halloween
by BWW News Desk on September 18, 2017 in Jacksonville

In the 1940's When cartoonist Charles Addams created his single-panel gag cartoons, which depicted a ghoulish American family with an affinity for all things macabre, even his crystal ball did not predict the future influence his characters would have. While he published more than 1300 cartoons for publications including The New Yorker, TV Guide and Harper's Bizarre, the evolution of those who became known as The Addams Family landed on TV, movies and on Broadway. The Addams Family musical will open October 4 at the iconic Alhambra Theatre and Dining in Jacksonville, Florida and run through November 12. (more...)
