CHEERS Star George Wendt to Lead RE-ANIMATOR THE MUSICAL in Las Vegas This Winter

Emmy Award-nominee George Wendt, well-known for his role on the hit TV show "Cheers," has been added to the cast for the two-week engagement of Re-Animator The Musical at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Troesh Studio Theater, Jan. 6-18, 2015. The starring role reunites Wendt with members of the original production.

Re-Animator The Musical tells the bizarre story of Herbert West, a young medical student who has discovered a glowing green serum that can bring the dead back to life...with catastrophic, yet hilarious results.

Based on the cult classic H.P. Lovecraft's The Re-Animator, Variety wrote of the musical "Not since Little Shop of Horrors has a screamfest tuner so deftly balanced seriousness and camp." This award-winning horror comedy is helmed by Stuart Gordon (who also directed the film) and features a splash zone for those who enjoy a little splatter!
