Where Did All These Zombies Come From?

“Night of the Living Dead” is a suspenseful shock-fest at the Maverick theater. Not high browed theater but a campy re-enactment of the movie, this show keeps the audience shrieking.

The play takes place when several embattled travelers seek refuge in a farm house from the strange events outside. They slowly discover that they are inside some kind of zombie break out where everyone eats each other and walk around really slowly.

Brian Newell directs this phantasm and makes full use of the Maverick space to recreate a sense of impending doom even before the show begins. The costumes match the time and sense of the film and the characters are stereotypes from that era.

There is a lot of action on the stage and I was constantly surprised that someone was not getting wounded, if they weren’t. It’s hard to tell with all the blood.

It’s a great show to bring a date to because it’s like a horror movie but has the immediacy of live theater. The horror is not just something up there on the screen that you see with your eyes. It’s right there in the room with you.
