This was originally posted to the Las Vegas EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL site in 2014. You’ll be seeing a lot of these archival posts from my days with EVIL DEAD to make sure they don’t get lost in the shuffle of the interwebs. Plus it is a bit of fun to stroll down memory lane…
Yes – we said HISTORY! So listen up screwheads!
We’ve been granted permission to release a cast recording of our one-of-a-kind splatterfest of a show. This will be the only official cast recording of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL that exists outside of the original Off-Broadway CD!
We want all the energy and excitement of the live stage show on our CD, and we’ve been working on it for months! After countless hours of recording and debating and engineering we are almost done. We need one final element to complete the thing – the most important piece of the entire project – OUR FANS! That’s right – where the hell would a CD representing our live show be without our fans being on there as well?!
We want YOU to be a part of this whole thing! This weekend – that’s right THIS weekend – we are recording the audience for our CD. Friday night at 10pm and Saturday night at 11:30pm. Come to the show, be a part of the fun, and help us make EVIL DEAD history!
And why will this make Las Vegas history? Well, EVIL DEAD is the first show in the history of Las Vegas to have been developed locally that made the transition to the Las Vegas Strip. That’s right. This is, whether the city likes it or not, Las Vegas’ show on the Strip. So naturally, as the first show to make that transition now being able to release a cast recording CD is an even bigger deal for the city.
So there ya go! JOIN US this weekend and make TWO kinds of history at once!
