31 Days of Halloween: Chicago’s Evil Dead: The Musical

One of my favorite things to do during Halloween season is partake in my local events such as horror marathons, gallery exhibits or horror themed plays. 

Over the years I have heard about Evil Dead:The Musical and I even own the soundtrack but I have never had the chance to experience the show live.

That all changed when the show arrive at Chicago’s Broadway Playhouse.

On Thursday I gathered my friend and we sat dead centered in the “splatter zone” section waiting to embrace this well-known musical. 

Evil Dead: The Musical follows the film franchise on the story of Ash and his friends shacked up in a mysterious cabin in the woods. The musical takes on a comedic tone with humorous songs and silly, off-color jokes and of course, lots of blood.

As a fan of the Evil Dead series I deeply enjoyed this show and the references made to things like Sam Raimi’s Spiderman, Ghost Dad and even Army of Darkness. 

For a girl who loves blood and gore it made a lot of sense to pick seats in an area known as “the spatter zone” which lives up to this name. I walked out with a big, bloody grin on my face and my arms cover with sticky, fake blood. 

This musical has set the tone for the Halloween season and I urge any of my local horror fans to go check this show out as soon as you can. 

The last day to see Evil Dead: The Musical is Oct 12 so pick a day before then, grab some friends and some ponchos and sit in the splatter zone. You can also stay clean in the regular seats and still walk out with a wonderful experience.
