“Evil Dead: The Musical?” Text can’t adequately convey the incredulity expressed by this question. I suspect I am not the only one who uttered this question when first hearing about the show. Could it really work? As a musical? Seriously. Really? Come on?
Last night, I went to see Evil Dead: The Musical for the first time and Sock “n” Buskin Theatre Company, in association with Erudite Theatre, have put together a rock solid show. They ably demonstrate that the concept works and is a whole lot of fun. I didn’t see the Toronto run, so I can’t compare it to that, but in terms of good time value for dollar, this really can’t be beat. If nothing else, it’s worth going just for the fun of being part of an audience who is totally onside with a show from beginning to end. I don’t get the obsession with the Evil Dead franchise and am not a huge fan of musicals but I enjoyed this production. Recommended.
