Hell is for Children...

4.5
and me, apparently. After laughing at some of the things I laughed at I am absolutely certain there is a spot waiting for me there. I haven't laughed as hard as I laughed Friday night in a very, very long time. This was so, so, so much better than I was expecting. I think I may have even peed myself a little.

If you take Team America World Police and add in a little Shaun of the Dead you have Song of the Dead. If you are easily offended then this show might not be for you. Despite it all though, there is a message. And an uplifting message at that.

Z Gillispie and George M. Faughnan are the real standouts of this show. I felt like there were some missed comedic opportunities with Gina Rickicki's "Peggy" character, but overall this was a great show.

I was going to give it a 4.0 but I have it the extra .5 for the brilliant Bauhaus reference. What can I say? You can take the girl out of the goth, but you can't take the goth out of the girl...or something like that.

Beauty AND Braaaains...

5.0
Okay, so not a horror fan here, but I am a hopeless romantic....so when a theater friend suggested we go to Dad's Garage to see "Song of the Living Dead" I was like....ummmm... ookaay...why not?!?! But, it was really awesome!! I had to say something because I can't believe that no one has written much of anything about it yet on this review site.

As they say, it truly is a musical about love, it truly is a play about zombies...yep, couldn't quite piece those two together myself at first...but it is hilarious, irreverent, romantic, poignant, politically incorrect, wicked, gory and gruesome... and it frightens me that I found all that mixed together right up my alley...I may need some therapy to get to the root of all that....

The small cast portrays many different characters flawlessly, and I especially enjoyed (Z Gillispie) Harry's monster ego and (George Faughnan) Reverend Seabrook's scary lack of inhibitions.....they could give lessons on how to be able to let yourself "go" and just "go there" on stage.....and you should GO see it if you get the chance, beauty and "braaaains", a combo you just can't beat.....
