Student-run group The Growing Stage is mounting George Reinblatt’s Evil Dead: The Musical, a blood-drenched show based on the 1981 horror classic. (I’m not sure how RIC’s production will go, but many companies offer the audience ponchos so they don’t get their clothes spattered.) It’s a technically ambitious show that tries to be awful on purpose, which can actually be hard to pull off. Running for one weekend only, this zombie deathfest features musical numbers with names like “Do the Necronomicon,” “What the Fuck Was That?” and “All the Men In My Life Keep Getting Killed By Candarian Demons”.
