Night of the Living Dead Live, the stage production based on George A Romero’s classic horror film, is a lively and surprisingly funny show to watch – even if the plot is a bit thin.
George A Romero’s 1968 movie Night Of The Living Dead not only unleashed zombies upon an unsuspecting world, but was also one of the first movies to fuse horrific gore with political allegory and just a spattering of satire.
Based on George A. Romero’s unparalleled 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, the first ever UK stage adaptation will open at Pleasance, London from 9 April to 19 May 2019. Directed by Benji Sperring, Night of the Living Dead Live will pay homage to the cult monochrome classic. Casting will be announced in due course.

The Toxic Avenger is certainly a stylised, kitsch, cult musical – takis’ set and costumes paint a vivid picture of a luminously dystopian New Jersey (or is it reality?), overrun with toxic waste that the Mayor (Natalie Hope) is dumping about town in order to make a quick buck.
This over the top, energetic and highly amusing musical has plenty to offer those who like their musicals with a bit of a quirky charm – but at times feels slightly too reliant on the same jokes over and over again.
It’s no small tale they have to tell, as small-town nerd Melvin takes on the corrupt establishment of New Jersey (Who Will Save New Jersey) who are taking bribes from the Manhattan elite so they can continue to dump their waste across the Hudson River.

Based on the cult movie of the 1980’s The Toxic Avenger is a gloriously silly and immensely enjoyable spoof on comic book heroes. It doesn’t take itself seriously, it’s just one delightful evening of entertainment from start to finish with a hugely talented cast, whose energy was at such a high level they gave out fun with a capital F!
