Evil Dead Review came to see Evil Dead: The Musical. Here's what they had to say about it!

Written by Jose Pineda

It’s an old tale. You’ve probably heard it a hundred times, but Taking Flight Theatre Company took the cult hit Evil Dead: The Musical, and made it fresh and enjoyable.

Evil Dead: The Musical is about five college students who steal away into an abandoned cabin in the woods during spring break. They soon discover a shotgun, The Book of the Dead, and a recording of demon-summoning words. Soon enough, each of them become Candarian Demons, and eventually, all turn against Ash, the story’s protagonist.

As Ash, Jesse Baskin was to die for! His vocals were on point and his comedic timing was excellent. “Housewares Employee,” a duet with Katie Pond as Linda, was hilarious and showed Baskin’s talents as the romantic lead. Susanna Todd as Ash’s demonetized sister Cheryl was a blast. She had such a powerful belt and showed so much comfort with her character. She and Baskin were very believable as brother and sister....

Saturday June 26th 12-3pm

Call Backs:
Sunday, June 27th 4-6pm

It is Sabbath Night in the Church of the Piranha — a church created by 15-year-old Chris Penrose as a way to prove to his mother, Una, that he is an adult and capable of running his own life. When Una’s mother Marilyn arrives for a surprise visit, the Sabbath ceremony takes a backseat to the drama that arises as Chris argues his independence from Una while Una attempts to maintain the emotional and physical balance she has worked so hard to keep in spite of Marilyn’s constant criticism and Chris’s teenage angst.

This original work by Virginia Tech English professor Edward Falco is an intense character-driven piece that examines the relationship between parent and child as children strive to be independent from their mothers’ hold over them.

Una - 35. Chris's Mother. Daughter of Marilyn
Marilyn - 55. Una's Mother
Chris - 15. Una's Son
Patty - 15. Chris's Girlfriend
