Hailed as "the best musical of this century" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and "the funniest musical of all time" by Entertainment Weekly, The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- in its first year on Broadway. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, this musical comedy is a show that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has called "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry." Learn More

The first act - Terror at BPT - started out with an interesting slant - the more animated zombies - but I think wandered too far afield with the non-affected people interactions. I think more could have been done with the "Vicor"'s role and the basis for the new order of things.
The second act - Last Night Cabaret - was more enjoyable and lots of humor. The inclusion of "Omar" in the audience was, at first, annoying; until I realized it was part of the act. Again, the more animated zombies was a twist on the accepted concept, but was amusing.
Zombie Double Feature is a double bill that tells the giddily gruesome stories of Boston Playwrights’ Theatre’s new inhabitants.
In Midnight at the Last Night Cabaret we find ourselves at a crossroads wondering if the imminent doom palpable in the city is reality or a joke. A group of performers gather at BPT to put on a vaudeville show as the world begins to collapse. Our awareness of time, cataclysmic scope, and absurdity are challenged as zombies and the living boggle their way through the performance laying waste to everything in their path. Only the audience can save us in this choose-your-own-adventure escapade through Boston’s last night as we know it.
Terror at BPT takes place months after the undead infestation has unleashed a pox upon humanity. Survivors continue to gather at Boston Playwrights’ Theatre to wait out the ruin. Under the watchful eye of The Vicar the inhabitants of BPT make fun where they can in close quarters where societal rules no longer apply. After a day of bumping, grinding, and praising the lord, one couple shares a moment of intimacy with supernatural repercussions.
