Clever, Delightful, Quirky, Raunchy, Energetic

See it if Soaring campy songs with zesty choreography and a silly story. Dirty jokes, sexually suggestive action, and bad puns. Enthusiastic.

Don't see it if You are looking for any hidden meaning. There is not even hope for a better future. Everyone becomes zombies. But being a zombie seems fun.

Entertaining

See it if Talented cast, some fun songs, well-polished and rehearsed show.

Don't see it if Plot is hard to follow; don't need an intermission for an 80 minute show. Thought there would be gore, but there isn't any. More campy.

Funny, Entertaining, Camp, Quirky

See it if you're looking for some camp fun. It's what you would expect—ridiculous, over-the-top, but thoroughly entertaining. Great comedic acting.

Don't see it if Songs are mixed. The title song is very catchy (hence why it is reprised twice), but many of the other songs are filler & should be reworked

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, 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.

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.

Theater Pizzazz
January 22nd, 2019

“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!”
