Once upon a time, i produced radio plays for the stage. We adapted some of the best science fiction and horror stories from the likes of Ray Bradbury and Edgar Allan Poe. But i always wanted to bring George Romero’s zombie classic Night Of The Living Dead to our enthusiastic audiences.
Well, it looks like Nictophobia Films has beat me to the punch! Their official stage adaptation premiers next month at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto. Granted, it’s not a radio play… but the production promises to be an amazing interactive experience.
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD LIVE will captivate audiences as they experience this classic told in the intimate setting of a live theater. This will bring the viewer closer to the story than ever before, as they are literally sitting in the house with the characters as they fight and kill their way through the marauding ghouls. At the end of the show everyone in the room will know what it feels like to experience a night with the living dead!
Like the film itself, the stage production will be presented entirely in black and white; from set design and costumes, right down to the actors themselves. The producers have even attempted to maintain a PG rating that will allow children the chance to experience Night Of The Living Dead Live as well. Heck, it sounds like the perfect family night!
A special Q&A with George Romero, Russ Streiner and John A. Russo will follow the show on May 3rd and 4th, and tickets are on sale right now! Be sure to visit the official website for more information including news, photos, merchandise and tickets.
