[ # ] Evil Dead The Musical killed off
February 19th, 2007 under Broadway

Looks like "Evil Dead The Musical" won’t survive in New York much longer: The Gotham tuner shutters Feb. 17. Although it attracted a small cult of fans of the camp-horror 1980s Sam Raimi pics on which it is based, the comically bloody "Evil Dead" stage show never attracted large enough crowds to sustain a long life. The show began perfs Oct. 2 and opened Nov. 1. Still, original cast recording is on tract for release this spring. And producers say they plan to roll out a tour as well as sit-down productions in other cities. When it closes, "Evil Dead" will have played 126 regular perfs and 34 previews at New World Stages.

I guess it didn’t take eating brains to figure out this was destined to fail. I am shocked it lasted as long as it did.
