From the start, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead was ripe for a musical adaptation—its cast of college kids is broad and over-acting, the film's minimal "cabin + woods" setting makes stage design a cinch, and the visual effects and makeup are low-fi enough that they can be translated to the stage as easily as red food coloring can be added to Karo syrup. And if they look cheesy? Well, that's part of the appeal, isn't it?
Austinites will have the chance to see it happen this October, when Salvage Vanguard Theatre and Doctuh Mistuh Productions put on Evil Dead: The Musical.
