Musical of the Living Dead

THEY’RE COMING TO GET YOU, BARBRA! MOTLD - MasterNamed Chicago’s Best Musical, Best New Play and Funniest Show, Musical of the Living Dead makes it East Coast premiere in July, 2014. Musical of the Living Dead takes audiences on a rip-roaring journey beyond the grave with its satirical send-ups of classic zombie films and musical theater. The curtain opens on 10 survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse and willing to try anything to escape. Writers Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts gleefully fulfill horror-film conventions in creating the melee of the zombie apocalypse as we watch the cast of memorable characters – all brought together seeking refuge from a ravenous horde of brain-eating (and dancing) zombies. The zombies and humans alike take part in the memorable show tunes, original songs inspired from such disparate sources as George Gershwin and Green Day – complete with tap dancing, power ballads and street-smart rapping zombies. Musical of the Living Dead is a hysterical, hummable, 4D zombie doomsday adventure complete with one of Bootless’ messiest Splatter Zone ever. And, this time, it’s not just blood coming your way.
