Forget Paranormal Activity. Skip the haunted houses. The most fun you can have this Halloween season is sitting up front, getting sprayed with blood at Evil Dead The Musical.
The production is unlike any I’ve ever seen, but let me start from the beginning. Director Sire Michaels (aka Chris Palkow) sets the over-the-top tone of the show before the curtains even open. The bombastic Michaels (aka Chris Palkow) pumps up the theater like a hype man before a concert, except this show features a “splatter zone.”
Evil Dead The Musical is a damn good time. It has all the blood, profanity and, at times, partial nudity that makes this time of the year so much fun, minus the nightmares. Unless you are terrified by singing and dancing undead, then you’re screwed.
Hey guys! Chris Palkow aka Sirc Michaels here. I wanted to reiterate that this is NOT my original story, but it IS something I give a crap about! I hope you find it informative and interesting! Leave your comments and share!
