Info from Cherry Davis:
I interviewed RICHARD KRAFT the Show Co-Director of the Evil Dead Live at the ACE Hotel Theatre. Richard charmed me while sharing how bringing his experience on Hollywood Bowl live shows shaped how he worked to incorporate the ACE Hotel Theatre in the overall design as well as working with Joseph LoDuca on using original music, choreography, singers and musicians to enhance the first live show. Over the years his work on Disney's The Nightmare Before Christmas Live at the Hollywood Bowl, Danny Elfman's Music From the Films of Tim Burton, Disney’s The Little Mermaid In Concert and Executive Producer of the Grammy nominated Danny Elfman and Tim Burton 25th Anniversary Music Box at the Hollywood Bowl taught him that it’s more than just recreating the film but taking the spirit and remaking it into something new.
