Pure camp, Funny, Toe tapping, Ambitious, Quirky

See it if you enjoy the "zombie" genre and are interested in loving homage, cleverly done and on the cheap. Knowledge of the film is helpful.

Don't see it if you dislike the zombie motif, or are expecting anything with the gore and suspense of the film. This is pure camp, ad exceedingly silly. Read more

Clever, Funny, Quirky, Ambitious, Lots of fun

See it if you want to laugh at a silly but very funny and entertaining musical parody. This was lots of fun, not to be taken seriously in the least.

Don't see it if If you want high brow humor or lavish musical numbers.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if You were a fan of the original movie and would enjoy a parody of it. A little over-the-top slapstick and a lot of fun. Great dancing.

Don't see it if If you don't enjoy silly parody and slapstick, or are not a fan of musicals in general. Escapism, nothing serious here.

See it if you enjoy campy, self-aware, musical comedies! Great singers! This show knows what it is and accomplishes what it sets out to do; entertain

Don't see it if you don't like broad comedy and parody, or shows with tracked music.

Cliched, Entertaining, Great singing, Funny, Delightful

See it if You like kitsch, broad humor, traditional show tunes all done well. A strong cast singing big songs while poking fun at everything possible.

Don't see it if You like subtlety or innovation. Mind actors playing multiple roles, show can be one note and the writer’s voice is weaker than others.

Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing, Loads of fun!!

See it if You want to see a creative spoof of a campy movie with extremely creative lyrics, lots of 'tongue in cheek' and great singing. It's a hoot!

Don't see it if You want the polished Broadway experience. It's not that. No scenery, few actors playing lots of parts; lots of silliness.

“The plot hews somewhat closely to George Romero’s original film...Each performer plays multiple roles and they all excel with the given material...Walker puts the cast through their paces with quick costume turns, zippy choreography and fun projections. The one down note of the show is the bombastic band/sound design which overpowers the singers at points. That aside, this is a hilarious, witty, very fun evening that skewers horror movies and pop culture with zest.”

“Fans of the cult film will be happy to learn the musical does not stray in any major points from the film...Walker has provided a riotous score of rock n’ roll, rhythm n’ blues and power ballads, with lyrics that are lots of fun. The script is campy and tongue-in-cheek. There’s love and death, blood and gore, courage and fear. And the energetic actors seem to be having a great time. So will you!”
