A treat for horror-movie buffs and fans of sing-along slapstick mutilation, Evil Dead The Musical 4D lovingly mutates Sam Raimi's goofy and gory splatterfest trilogy into a gut-busting cult classic that the New York Times has heralded as "the next Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Packed with pratfalls, a jaunty score, and gallons of old-fashioned gore, Evil Dead trebuchets audiences into a spooky remote cabin, where doomed college students succumb to possessive demonic forces more pesky and sinister than a pebble-filled sock. Limbs fly and heads roll as our hero, Ash, armed with his signature moxie and chainsaw, battles the undead while the cast is giddily eviscerated to showstopping numbers such as "Do the Necronomicon" and "Look Who's Evil Now." Cheeky, campy, and catchier than an appendix removal, Evil Dead The Musical 4D rewards fans of the horror franchise while recruiting new generations into the cult. The “splatter zone” front rows at Evil Dead shows are typically covered in plastic to catch the crimson corn-syrup shrapnel from the stage geysers, much to the delight of contemporary artists who tote around blank canvases. Fans should wear casual clothing or purchase one of the available ponchos because of the likelihood of far-reaching arterial sprays.
Producer and V Theater owner David Saxe was born into Vegas show business, raised by a mother who danced at Les Folies Bergere and a father who led the band for the Rat Pack. Saxe’s V Theater runs its nine concurrent shows in a 40,000-square-foot space divided into four showrooms on multiple floors, each retaining an intimate feeling with seating that brings the audience closer to performers. The V Theater’s current shows range from a seven-act, family-friendly Ultimate Variety Show to Marc Savard’s Comedy Hypnosis, an entertaining act where Savard persuades audience members to hilariously dance, act like animals, and ghostwrite his autobiography.
