Blood, Guts, and Glamour at The Broadway Playhouse

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 obsessed with 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.
