Park next to The Maverick Theatre and walk across the bridge over the train tracks to one of the restaurants near Commonwealth Ave. I suggest Hopscotch, Kentro or El Amerikano. Can't go wrong at any of these spots :)

Quotes & Highlights

“Chock-full of genuine horror … the shocks keep a-comin’ in this inventive staging.” —Orange County Register


Back by popular demand, The Maverick Theater’s original adaptation of _Night of the Living Dead _returns to the stage. The dead are walking, and hunger for human flesh.
