Now in its eighth season at the City Theatre, Evil Dead: The Musical features a talented cast full of both new and returning members. If you're the type of die-hard fan who want's an up-close-and-personal view of all the gory fun, Splatter Zone seats are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Taking elements from all three Evil Dead movies, this musical follows the story that fans love, but with all the added humor and energy you could expect from a Broadway musical, with numbers like "All the Men in My Life Keep Getting Killed by Candarian Demons," "What the F**k Was That?" and "Do the Necronomicon."
All shows begin at 8 p.m.; 2301 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-3465; olympiaentertainment.com; Tickets are $30.
