    Basically-

    If you live in Toronto, you are really engaging in masochism if you haven't taken in this show yet.

    Such an obvious labour of love, and outright FUN.

    I sat in the front couple of rows, armed with a new white t-shirt for, well...

    I really can't speak highly enough of the production. I laughed a -lot-. And blood came down on me from the -ceiling-. And the cast recording CD was tres worth it.

    Catch it before it closes in the summer!

    I almost flew to New York with a buddy for one day to catch it and Wicked a few years ago. Want to see it so bad.

    Did they give him the chainsaw hand in it? I own the CD, and from listening to it, while a lot is taken from II and Darkness, I get the impression that wasn't.

    How big is the splatter section, if I wanted to get bloody where should I sit?

    The chainsaw is in it, and the CHAINSAW-HAND is in it. :) 

    The splatter zone was the front 2 rows, which had a decent number of seats (at least 20-30). If you're seeing it in Toronto, which is where the show was thought up, try and get a seat in the left Splatter section, near the right side of the section. This places you right in front of the cellar door, and a LOT of the main splatterage. The right side gets a decent amount later in the show too though, while the center (the Premium Splatter seats) get it pretty heavy in the finale I think.

    All the sections will get drenched though. ;)

    I hate plays, but I sooo want to see this! Did it have the hand gag? Did it have the really stupid sound effects?

    I got the CD and love it. I really want to see the production. If I win the lottery I'm taking a vacation to go see it.

    I wanted to see this. Lil' SQ went and loved it.

    I can't imagine it's good as an independent work, and I know it's cashing in on my cult film nostalgia...but whatever. I'd like to see it.

    Getting to see Evil Dead: The Musical where i live is about as likely as finding hillbillies with straight teeth, lol.

    Do you think if I started a petition, (and got all of about 50 people in like 20 counties that even knows what it is) they would do like a one week run at our Shakespeare Festival?
    i can dream....
