What a wonderful night of entertainment. The songs and dancing were amazing. How nice to hear a black box theater production where every voice is clear and on--key. And, kudos to the sound manager for making a live band work in this space.
I was absolutely stunned by the choreography. The dancers were tight and their movements sharp. In one scene, they were seated, backs to the audience, and THEY WERE STILL DOING CHOREOGRAPHY! I almost plotzed right there, I was so happy. If you watch closely, you'll see nods to Fossey, Bye Bye Birdie, and Michael Jackson's Thriller.
The music and songs were a joy. Both funny and catchy. We were singing the title song on the way home. That's a good sign for a musical.
The plot was...well, it is called Zombie Vixens From Hell: The Musical!...so if you're expecting Shakespeare or Mamet, you're in for a bad time. The actors take the script and make it their own.
If the pacing was a little tighter in some scenes, and if it had a few small cuts, it would be perfect. This is one of those shows you see at the beginning of its run, and then again near its closing.
Finally, a shout out to all the Zombie Vixens in the cast. You know those slutty Betty Paige tattoos you see? You're like those, but brought to life. You are all dirty, nasty she-beasts. Especially the one with the megaphone.

Very energetic show with singing, dancing, band behind the curtain, and, I suppose, typical zombie-eating-brains shenanigans. Our absolute favorite actor was the professor who was terrific in the role of the bad guy, mean to sweet lab student...continued
