Susan Shay here–
Last night, my family went a live performance of “Evil Dead, the Musical”, and I have to tell you, it was a great show. Hilarious, irreverent, silly, and cold.
You have to ignore a lot of four letter words, but if you took out all the four letter words, the play would only be about half as long.
The play is performed in a quonset hut (unheated. brrr!) in the woods near Drumright, Oklahoma. It’s the same haunted woods where they’ve had the Haunted Trail for the last 14 years. (Yes, the Haunted Trail was still going strong this year.)
We didn’t go on the Haunted Trail. We did, however, go eat at Joseph’s in Drumright. And even after eating there for my entire lifetime, it’s still DELICIOUS! And way more food than I can eat in two meals.
Here are directions.
Back to the play. I understand that, if you’ve seen the movie, “Evil Dead”, and liked it, you’ll absolutely love the play. You’ll get the jokes. You’ll understand several inside jokes.
I haven’t seen it, but I still enjoyed the play and the jokes. I picked out a few actors who played several parts, but that just makes it better doesn’t it?
Now I know you won’t run out and see the play, since there are about two more showings and they’re both today. But next time you get the chance to see a little local theater, give it a shot. You just might be surprised.
