Gordon Revives Re-Animator as Musical


Cast report from early show

Still enjoying the success and critical acclaim surrounding his stage production Poe with Jeffrey Combs, director Stuart Gordon is spearheading a new stage endeavor: Re-Animator: The Musical.

Said to be Gordon’s next ambitious and “terrific” new production, sources who caught an early show said William Atherton and George Wendt knocked it out of the park in their respective roles as Dr. Hill and Halsey. A newcomer filled the shoes of Herbert West.

Re-Animator, of course, isn’t the first genre film to make a leap from the screen to the stage. Evil Dead: The Musical, Night of the Living Dead: The Musical and even The Silence of the Lambs: The Musical have all garnered fans. We’re hearing there’s good reason to be excited for a crooning Re-Animator.

We’ll let you know when the curtains rise on the show.
