Musical of the Living Dead

Book & Lyrics by Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts
Music by Mary Spray     Musical Arrangements by Matt Mehawich

THEY’RE COMING TO GET YOU, BARBARA!
Named Chicago’s Best Musical, Best New Play and Funniest Show.

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. Ten survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse are willing to try anything to escape. Writers Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts gleefully fulfill horror-film conventions in creating the melee of the zombie apocalypse as we watch the survivors band together against a ravenous horde of brain-eating (and dancing) zombies.

The zombies and humans alike take part in memorable original show tunes inspired from such disparate sources as George Gershwin and Green Day – complete with tap dancing, power ballads and rapping.  Musical of the Living Dead is a hysterical, hummable, 4-D zombie doomsday adventure complete with Bootless’ infamous The Pit Splatter Zone.
