Now she needs to rebuild the bridges she burned and reclaim Sharona-dom because Undine-ness has collapsed on her.

BWW Review: Jordan Wolfe's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: THE MUSICAL Makes Zombies Fun Ag Photo BWW Review: Jordan Wolfe's NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: THE MUSICAL Makes Zombies Fun Again
by Victoria Ordin - Mar 17, 2019

Life in Trump's America often feels like a deathlike daily march out of a hole eight stories below ground. Jordan Wolfe capitalizes on our collective weariness with his exuberant, campy rock musical version of George Romero's iconic 1968 horror film, Night of the Living Dead. As with all remakes, it helps to know the source material, if only to compare or appreciate the handling of familiar characters and plot-lines. But NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD! THE MUSICAL! stands on its own and makes you laugh even if zombie-eating creatures in 'middle of nowhere, Pennsylvania' don't generally interest you. Mitchell Walker's direction keeps NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: THE MUSICAL! moving at a clip. The choreography is far more more elaborate than in most shows of this scale, as are the sets. Often in off-Broadway musicals, there are three or so strong songs and a lot of filler. And even if more than a handful of songs are solid, they tend to sound the same. Jordan Wolfe's songs range from rock to jazzy-pop to more traditional musical theater fare and his dialogue is crisp and clever. Add first-rate singers and strong musical direction by David Rosenberg and you get a well-executed musical farce (marred only by muddy sound and occasionally drowned out lyrics).
