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. Now the national touring production is back at the Pantages for a second round of hilarity. 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

Let me get one thing straight right off the bat: expectations were high. Perhaps too high. Having thoroughly enjoyed Urban Death twice, I have become a fan of ZJU. LOVE Urban Death. This, not so much.
While fans of mindless zombie flicks will love it, I found the story completely forgettable--in fact, I forgot it a long time ago. Something about an apartment complex in which everyone turns into zombies. Oh, and dogs. Zombie dogs. Cute, perhaps the most memorable characters on the stage. The non-canine ("human" seems inadequate) characters lacked any sort of depth and the story--well, was there actually one? I don't think so. Not one that mattered anyway.
The blood and gore was, in classic ZJU style, greusome and gross. Exactly what most of the audience probably came to see. I however wanted more.
Campy zombie stories are a dime-a-dozen on Netflix. Having enjoyed the twisted, playful and artful masterpiece of Urban Death, I expected more--and was sorely disappointed with this piece. It was utterly one-dimensional and forgettable. None of the mind-bending, psychological thrill-ride that made Urban Death so magical, and no meaningful story to speak of.
Yes, I keep comparing it to Urban Death. Perhaps that is not fair to 'Attack of the Rotting Corpses'. What can I say--the bar was high, and at least to me, this fell well short of the mark.That said, I will not write off ZJU productions any time soon. I know the genius is there--I have witnessed it, and I will be back for more!
