Just in time for Halloween, Evil Dead – The Musical be back at the Randolph Theatre (736 Bathurst St.) for a strictly limited engagement, from Oct. 31 to Nov. 9. Once again staged by co-creator and original director Chris Bond, Evil Dead – The Musical is just like the original film; an old fashioned boy meets girl story where the boy, girl and friends take a weekend getaway at a cabin in the woods, boy hopes to get lucky, but accidentally unleashes an ancient evil force; friends turn into Candarian Demons, and boy fights until dawn to survive.
“This is really a story about the little Canadian show that could. It all started 11 years ago, and with over 20 stops, our North American tour proves audiences are still hungry for more,” said Corey Ross, president of Starvox Entertainment. “Toronto audiences have been especially mad about this show – we’ve even had people get married on stage covered in blood! As a special thank you to all the fans, we just had to bring the show home to Toronto for Halloween.”
Created by George Reinblatt, Frank Cipolla, Melissa Morris and Bond, Evil Dead – The Musical is a home-grown success story. The production is based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead film franchise and opened at Toronto’s Tranzac Club in 2003. Playing to sold out audiences around the world, Evil Dead – The Musical is a proven critic and fan favourite. Starvox introduced Evil Dead – The Musical to Philadelphia in 2013 before heading back to Toronto for a limited run that was repeatedly extended after sold-out success. The current North American tour includes stops in Toronto and Hamilton, with stateside stops in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, New York, Connecticut, North Carolina, Florida, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Arizona.
The “Splatter Zone” is still part of the show where audience members sitting in this designated area (the first 4 rows of the centre orchestra) get doused in fake blood, incorporating fun real-life effects for the ultimate Evil Dead experience. In addition to bloody seats, the show’s bloody jokes and bloody tunes (“All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons”, “What the F@#k Was That”) keep audiences laughing out loud, and screaming for more.
