Musical of the Living Dead Attacks Chicago This October
Billed as a “Musical Zom-com” (zombie comedy), Musical of the Living Dead is an original musical parody of classic zombie films and musical theatre. Featuring music inspired by everything from Gershwin to Green Day, Musical of the Living Dead follows the lives of ten very different people trapped in a farmhouse during the breakout of a zombie apocalypse. They are all brought together seeking refuge from the brain-eating zombies outside and, following classic zombie genre rules, we see who gets eaten, who comes back to eat someone else and who lives to fight another day.
Musical of the Living Dead features several sequences of carnage – each one more visceral than the last. The cast will be bloody…the first few of rows of the audience will be bloody…and everyone will have a bloody good time – laughing and being horrified all at the same time.
