About this show

Voted "Best Musical" in 2012 and "Best New Play" in 2011 by the Chicago Reader, Musical of the Living Dead takes audiences on a rip-roaring journey beyond the grave with its satirical send-ups of classic zombie films and musical theater. The curtain opens on 10 survivors of a recent zombie apocalypse, trapped in a farmhouse and willing to try anything to escape. Writers Lewallen and Younts gleefully fulfill horror-film conventions in creating the melee of the zombie apocalypse as one watches the cast of memorable characters – all brought together seeking refuge from a ravenous horde of brain-eating (and dancing) zombies in this "completely original experience" (Chicago Journal).
