Back for its third smash year, this award winning "Musical Zom-com" (zombie comedy), hailed by the Chicago Reader as The Best Musical of 2012, 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 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. The zombies and humans alike all take part in the memorable showtunes, all orginal songs inspired from such disparate sources ranging from George Gershwin to Green Day, complete with bloody tap dancing, power ballads and streetsmart rapping zombies.Those intrepid souls who plan to sit in the front rows should be ready to be part of the "splatter zone", as the stage's invisible fourth wall may prove porous to blood and flying bits of brain as we watch this hysterical, hummable zombie doomsday unfold. Directed with Book & Lyrics by Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts Music by Mary Spray Musical Arrangements by Matt Mehawich Choreography by Carisa Barreca Produced by The Cowardly Scarecrow Theatre Company, INC Recommended for ages 14+ due to strong language and gore
