BOOMSTICK BALLET. I've posted about this insanely glorious show before here on the Archives and now it's come back! I'm talking about the three-part dance opera dedicated to the greatest films of Bruce Campbell's career! This rockin' show adapts Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness and Bubba Ho-Tep into dance and song. The result? See for yourself in the video below!
Boomstick Ballet is set to October 6, 7, and 8, 2016 at Theater for the New City in NYC. Details here on the website.
The official description reads: "In their second major collaboration, Angela Hariell’s dance company, The Love Show, and Corn Mo’s band, .357 Lover, created “BOOMSTICK BALLET: A Bruce Campbell Dance Opera in 3 Acts". In the true pioneering indie style of the Sam Raimi originals, the "Evil Dead II" and "Army of Darkness” acts feature a vast cast of characters played by a few versatile performers, and impressive production values on a shoestring budget. The "Bubba Ho-Tep” act stays loyal to the vision of Don Coscarelli's film, delivering sincere messages about ageism and both the frailty and the resilience of the human condition, with a healthy dose of action and pure goofy comedy. The production premiered at (le) poisson rouge on Saturday, October 10, 2015, during New York Comic Con, to an enthusiastic crowd of both seasoned Campbell aficionados and eager newbies. Due to popular demand, it is slated to return on October 6, 7, and 8, 2016 at Theater for the New City."
