Onstage: Evil Dead: The Musical by Falcon Theater

Guess this genre: Five attractive college students take off to a remote cabin in the woods, dead set on a five-day sex-and-booze bender. Said cabin is abandoned, spooky and also happens to be the last known location of the Book of the Dead, a breezy beach read bound with human skin and inked in human blood. It’s not on Oprah’s list, but it does open a gate to Hell when read aloud.

I got it! It’s a horror movie! It’s Saw 1! No, not that one.

Saw 2? No … Saw 35?

Wrong (except for the appearance of a saw): Try musical theater. Falcon Theater’s bawdy, bloody, side-splitting, horror-spoofing Evil Dead: The Musical has everything a great American musical should. There’s friendship, romance, a chainsaw, a decapitation, an homage to the King of Pop and an abundance of colorful language.

Evil Dead: The Musical, presented by Falcon Theater, continues through Nov. 6 at the Monmouth Theater in Newport. Go here to read Harper Lee's full review and to get showtimes and ticket details.
