Stage 773
1225 W Belmont Ave Chicago

Ten survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse, are willing to try anything to escape in Musical of the Living Dead. Voted Chicago's "Best Musical" by the Chicago Reader, this parody of classic zombie films and musical theater puts you in the center of the chaotic zombie apocalypse as you watch a desperate and amusing cast of characters seek refuge from a ravenous horde of brain-eating zombies, who occasionally break out into wild and crazy dance moves.

Chicago Reader - Somewhat Recommended

"...Like the zombies who populate it, this musical spoof of the George Romero horror classic is asking for a hatchet. Through two-plus hours of frenetic foolishness and scattershot scatology, cocreators Marc Lewallen and Brad Younts never offer a clear target for their satire. Sometimes it's the creaky contrivances of Romero's film, or the hokeyness of musical theater, or the ill-informed assumptions of workaday racists, or gay men's love of belting divas."

Stage and Cinema - Not Recommended

"...A thrill ride should be much shorter and sharper than this indulgent frat-show tripe with its forgettable songs (borrowing shamelessly from Les Miserables, Green Day or Gershwin) and tortured lyrics. But then two beers per act do make a difference—unfortunately, not in the show itself. If you need an excuse to booze through a play, this is your Shangri La."
