I spent last weekend at a horror musical show called “Evil Dead the Musical” at the V Theater in Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas. I didn’t know anything about the show so I was in for a big surprise when the blood started flying into the first four rows of the theater. I was seated in the fifth row and managed to keep dry. I had no idea that the rows in front of me were the spatter zone even though everyone seated there had on tee shirts that said “Spatter Zone.” I thought it was a group of people that belonged to a special organization. I always ask to be seated in the front row so I could take close up pictures but that evening I didn’t request a front row seat. Subconsciously I must have known something.
Sirc Michaels (aka Chris Palkow) directed the talented cast of characters who created a lot of drama and lots of blood. They actually stood on stage and aimed the blood spray at the front rows and then came out into the audience and surprised them by spraying them on their backs. It was so funny and comical and I must say that I loved every minute of it and I was grateful that I wasn’t sitting in their seats.
Limbs are dismembered and a head is cut off and all this is to music and singing and lots of blood. It was a crazy experience and it was a night filled with laughs.
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!
