Adventurous Boise theatergoers flocked to the Idaho Outdoor Association Grange Hall throughout October 2011, put on the trashbag-turned-poncho they were handed and braced themselves to get splattered in faux-blood, a la any Gwar concert.
According to a press release, Daisy's Madhouse sold out all seven performances of its Evil Dead The Musical production last year. The nonprofit theater company is bringing back the hilariously horrifying story of five people who journey to a remote cabin and end up turning into zombies. The return production promises not only more opportunities to see the show, but even more fake blood.
In addition to songs with inventive titles, such as "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons" and "Ode to an Accidental Stabbing," audience members can enjoy terrible jokes, ridiculously over-the-top deaths, and--for those in the front of the makeshift theater--getting covered in fake blood.
The show is based on the cult classic Evil Dead movie franchise from Sam Raimi. Jennifer Dunn directs a cast that includes Chelsea Lee Bennett, Gage Egurrold, Terry Heying, Karen Holcomb, Paul Kersey, Cory Mikhals, Carly Oppie, Sean Small, Lora Volkert and Erin Westfall. With sexual innuendo, adult language and over-the-top-silly violence aplenty, this isn't a show for the kiddies.
The show will continue through Friday, Nov. 3. Tickets are available in advance at brownpapertickets.com.[ Video is no longer available. ]
