The weather was freezing (28). I wore warm clothes. It's a very casual venue (college kids)..

If there's no event at the Agganis Arena and no Red Sox game, you can park in the Arena lot which should have plenty of availability. Cost was $12.

Couldn't stick around for the second half, but the first act was absolutely horrendous. The story made no sense and it was overtly sexual for absolutely no reason whatsoever. The actors, although enthusiastic, were stuck with a horribly written...continued

Best church service ever. Scary, fun, scary, and very adult. Keep the children at home away from the zombies. Bring a fan as the theatre was HOT.

Very topical. Lotta fun, at times a little dumb - but that's the point of zombie plays! My lady friend thought it was terrible, but she's lame.

Description

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.

Contains adult language, adult situations, ultra violence and zombie dance breaks. Parental guidance is suggested; not suitable for children under 17.
