Gory Fun with Horror Flick Parody

You don’t need to be an expert on cheapo horror movies to enjoy Evil Dead: the Musical at the Omaha Community Playhouse.

But a little hint of the genre being parodied would help you get past its biggest negative: the off-putting opening which seemed to center on a horny male named Scotty shouting “Stupid bitch” at his female companions.  It’s justified by this convention:

Music Plays On, Comics Cavort

“If music be the food of love, play on. Give me an excess of it.” So begins Twelfth Night at the Joslyn Castle.

But the Brigit St. Brigit company’s only excess comes in sound of laughter bouncing off the handsome satinwood walls of the Castle’s elegant music room. The romantic comedy has been called Will Shakespeare’s most musical play and this cast can claim it as the funniest.

It not only opens with that...
