Well this was a freaking shock for me this morning, I heard that Stuart Gordon was planning on making Re-Animator a musical for the stage last year. But to find out it is ready to go is just insane.
Thanks to the guys over at STYD for the info, Re-Animator: The Musical is being directed by Stuart Gordon and has the same guys from the 1985 film, Tony Doublin, John Naulin and John Beuchler helming the special effects. So the blood will flow oh so freely and not only that, the first row is designated as the “splash zone”.
Previews for the musical will run from February 18th through till March 4th and the musical will open on March 5th through to March 27th at the Steve Allen Theatre in Hollywood, CA.
Re-Animator: The Musical stars George Wendt (Cheers), Chris L. McKenna (King of the Ants), and
Jesse Merlin (Star of The Beastly Bombing). Which also stars, Rachel Avery,
Mark Beltzman, Cynthia Carle, Brian Gillespie, and Liesel Hanson, and
introducing Graham Skipper as Herbert West.
The show is not suitable for small children, to book your tickets and for more information regarding the theatre location head on over to SteveAllenTheatre.com.
