Tucson, Someone Needs To Make 'Evil Dead: The Musical' Happen Here

Posted By on Fri, Jun 14, 2013 at 2:08 PM

During a morning-time conversation that meandered from broken equipment to celebrity tournaments to ultimate frisbee, Dan Gibson and I discovered something magical, by way of Oregon's Willamette Week: the existence of Evil Dead: the Musical.

The show, based off of the campy horror classic Evil Dead series (and not the incredibly serious 2012 remake), includes such spirited songs as "Look Who's Evil Now," "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons" and the classic "What the Fuck Was That?," which you can listen to below:

The musical, which has Canadian origins, seems very much like Rocky Horror Picture Show, with a campy take on campy horror films — only this one features demons, rather than aliens, and has 100% less Meatloaf.

Still, by virtue of the songs alone (which you can hear on Spotify, if you have an account), there is absolutely no way that this thing doesn't make bank in this city.

Someone, anyone — produce this play. I will be first in line for tickets. I promise.
