Evil Dead: The Musical

When: Fridays, 8 p.m. and Saturdays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Oct. 31 2015

In 2006 The New York Times suggested, “Evil Dead: The Musical wants to be the next Rocky Horror Show, and it just may succeed.” While those are some big fishnets to fill, Evil Dead has made quite a splash since its 2003 debut in the back room of Toronto’s Tranzac Club. A campy mashup of all three films in Sam Raimi’s horror franchise, Evil Dead even acknowledges its debt to Richard O’Brien’s cult musical from 1973 with a shout-out in “Do the Necronomicon” — a devilish dance number that name-drops “The Time Warp” along with other pop oddities like Henry Winkler and Bell Biv DeVoe.

Price: $20-$33
