We were pleased that they didn't gouge the consumer on the cost of drinks, snacks and T-shirts/hats. Everything was very low key and affordable. A nice group of people run this place.

The weather was fair. I wore casual clothes. It is not a fancy affair.

Campy, silly and over the top. It's not Sweeney Todd or Little Shop of Horrors (both of which we consider masterpieces), but this 90-minute musical was lots of fun. It was obvious the audience (even or maybe especially the ones in the first few...continued

“Way too much fun!” –-LA Weekly

“Eye-popping … ” –-Los Angeles Times
“Not since _Little Shop of Horrors has a screamfest tuner so deftly balanced  seriousness and camp.” –-_Variety


In 1985, Stuart Gordon directed his first feature film and created a sensation. It was Re-Animator, a smashing success based on a horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. The film delivered as many laughs as it did screams making it a cult classic among horror fans and winning a Critic’s Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Now, Gordon is back with his co-writers Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris and composer/lyricist Mark Nutter to turn Re-Animator into a musical for the stage.

Special effects are being created by the same guys who created them for the 1985 movie: Tony Doublin, John Naulin and John Beuchler. And the blood will flow so freely that the first three rows of the center section will be designated as a “splash zone.” Needless to say, the show is not for small children.
