Evil DeadAre you a fan of Halloween? You may enjoy Evil Dead: The Musical, directed by Christopher Bondat  at The Broadway Playhouse. This musical is filled with everything a Halloween junkie would need; demonic spirits, naïve teenagers wandering alone in the woods, chainsaws and eerie music. This play’s got something for the creep in all of us.

Not a fan of blood and guts? No problem!

This Canadian classic is chalk-full of hilarious one-liners and humor that’d have the grinch rollin’ in his grave. So come get your creep on with the cast of Toronto’s most beloved musical!

Evil Dead: The Musical* will run from September 23 through October 12 at The Broadway Playhouse. For more information about showtimes or to buy tickets, click here.

*This performance is not suitable for children under the age of 12. See Broadway In Chicago’s website to learn about designated ‘Splatter Zones’!
