Re-Animator The Musical Extends Itself Like an Unfurled Intestine
Good news for you folks in Los Angeles who have not witnessed the absolute mad genius that is Re-Animator The Musical! More dates have been added (including midnight shows) and more gore will be flowing freely! I'm STILL washing the blood off me! What an experience!
Starting April 22nd, midnight shows on Friday nights and 3:30 pm matinee performances on Sunday afternoons have been added at The Steve Allen Theater. Hit up that link for directions and ticket info. You WON'T be sorry! Hell, if you live out of state, believe us when we say this is totally worth flying in for!
In 1985 Stuart Gordon directed his first feature film and created a sensation. It was “Re-Animator,” a smashing success based on a horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. The film delivered as many laughs as it did screams, making it a cult classic among horror fans, and won a Critic’s Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Now Gordon is back with his co-writers Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris and composer/lyricist Mark Nutter to turn “Re-Animator” into a musical for the stage.
Special effects are being done by the same guys who did them for the 1985 movie: Tony Doublin, John Naulin, and John Beuchler. And the blood will flow so freely that the first rows will literally be designated as a “splash zone.” Needless to say, the show is not for small children.
The cast stars Harry S. Murphy, Chris L. McKenna (King of the Ants), and Jesse Merlin (Star of The Beastly Bombing). Also starring are Rachel Avery, Mark Beltzman, Cynthia Carle, Marlon Grace, Brian Gillespie, and Liesel Hanson, and introducing Graham Skipper as Herbert West.
