Evil Dead the Musical
"One bloody good time."
-Noel Schecter, New City Stage

"Liberating, rowdy, body-splitting fun."
-Quinn Rigg, Chicagoland Musical Theatre

"One of the silliest, bloodiest, most wonderfully excessive shows you could want...this one is something you ought to see."
-Karen Topham, Chicago On Stage

JEFF RECOMMENDED! It just wouldn't stay dead. Black Button Eyes Productions (blackbuttoneyes.com) brings this loving and cheerfully profane musical parody of Sam Raimi's classic Evil Dead films back to the city for its Chicago Storefront Premiere. When a group of fresh-faced college kids go to a cabin in the woods for spring break, it's only a matter of time before spells are spoken and demonic possession begins. Take in the horror and hilarity in the gritty storefront setting where this show belongs!

Directed by Ed Rutherford
Choreographed by Derek Van Barham
Music Direction by Oliver Townsend

Performances Thursdays-Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm through Saturday February 16, 2018.

We've also added one off-night performance on Tuesday, January 29 at 7:30 pm!

Box office (cash and check only) will open 1 hour before each performance at the theater.

The show runs approximately two hours, including one ten minute intermission.

Please note: The space does not have concessions or a bar; venue is BYOB.

ABOUT SEATING: Seating is general admission, except that the three rows of seats house left (24 seats total) are sold separately as the SPLATTER ZONE. Audience members who buy splatter zone area tickets should be prepared to be get hit with some of our (non-allergenic, completely washable) fake blood during Act Two of the performance. People seated in these rows will be provided with disposable ponchos when they check in at the box office, but may wish to bring their own ponchos/coverings or choose their attire carefully. PLEASE NOTE: While we aim our blood only at the Splatter Zone, we do not guarantee that audience members in other sections of the house will never get hit.

We do have a limited amount of accessible seating available. Regretfully, it is not in the splatter zone. If you need accommodation for a wheelchair please email blackbuttoneyesproductions@gmail.com so we can make sure we hold the accessible seating for you at that performance.
