When I introduce a show or event to you, my dear readers, I often begin with some sort of context, like a comment about the writer or my expectations for the show. I don’t need to do that in this case, though, because all I need to tell you is that Evil Dead – The Musical is a musical with a splatter zone. A zone, where you can get splattered.
Yeah. Do I actually need to say anything else about it? If so, I could tell you that it is a musical based on the Evil Dead movie franchise, and that it won the Audience Choice Dora Award in 2007. I could refer you to the praise that Toronto critics have sung of it, or even link you to a video of one of the numbers. But I don’t need to do that, because you already know that Evil Dead – The Musical is a musical with a splatter zone. And frankly, if that doesn’t make you want to see it already, I don’t what possibly could. (Descriptions of a clever plot and an awesome score might be helpful for some people, but did you see the bit about THE $&%#ING SPLATTER ZONE?!)
We at blogUT are all about the altruism, which is we why we are giving away two free tickets to the show. All you have to do is comment or tweet a micro-review of the best musical you’ve ever seen. We won’t give you a word limit, but we’ll say that brevity gets extra points. The best – cleverest and most informative – micro-review wins a pair of tickets to see Evil Dead – The Musical.
begins October 24 at the Randolph Theatre (20 minute walk from campus)
