No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

Evil Dead on Broadway

Evil Dead: The Musical will soon make the move to Broadway!

Inspired by director Sam Raimi's 1980s cult classic films Evil Dead and Evil Dead II, the musical first hit the boards in Toronto in 2003. Now, it is following in footsteps of The Drowsy Chaperone, a Tony award winner that began life as a Toronto Fringe Festival show before making the leap to Broadway success.

But a slasher flick as musical fodder? Well, if the idea of dancing ghouls and bloody chainsaws seem a strange topic for a Broadway show, consider that musicals about a disfigured creep in an opera house, starving rebels during the French Revolution and a bunch of cats have all done pretty well. It couldn't be worse than a musical Lord of the Rings, right?
