Following a sold-out concert run at Don't Tell Mama over Halloween, Night of the Living Dead! The Musical! will play a limited run at Off-Broadway's Theatre Row beginning in January 2019.
Jaime Cepero (Smash) and Meg Lanzarone (The Marvelous Wonderettes) will star as Ben and Meg in the rock-and-roll send-up of the 1968 zombie film.
Night of the Living Dead! The Musical! features book, music, and lyrics by Jordan Wolfe. In the musical comedy, three couples, fleeing a mob of bloodthirsty creatures, seek refuge in an abandoned house.
Performances are scheduled to run January 16–February 8, 2019, with a January 18 opening night.
The cast also features Wolfe, Michelle Dowdy (Broadway’s Hairspray), Philip Bryan (Grinch), and Susan J. Jacks (Forbidden Broadway). The production is directed by Mitchell Walker (artistic director, RAAC) with music direction by David Rosenberg.
Night of the Living Dead! The Musical! will move into Theatre Row following the conclusion of The Marvelous Wonderettes' long-running engagement. As previously reported, the three-year run will end January 6.
