Hailed by the Chicago Reader as the Best New Play of 2011, Musical of the Living Dead takes audiences on a rip-roaring journey beyond the grave with its satirical send-ups of classic zombie films and musical theater. The curtain opens on 10 survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse and willing to try anything to escape. Writers Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts gleefully fulfill horror-film conventions in selecting which characters survive and which succumb to the screeching songs of the zombies, who have sewn up their larynxes to better perform harmonized ditties. As musical trends rarely reach the deaf ears of the undead, the play’s soundtrack, performed by a live band, gathers inspiration from such disparate sources as George Gershwin, Green Day, and the werewolf doo-wop group that sometimes practices out of The Charnel House’s basement.
VIP attendees who plan to sit in the front rows will find the included ponchos handy, as the stage’s invisible fourth wall may prove porous to blood and flying bits of brain. A CD of the show’s soundtrack reminds viewers of the gory good time long afterward, and beer koozies keeps drinks wrapped in a comforting embrace.
