Re-Animator the Musical has been re-animated, with new songs and new performers, just in time for Halloween. Stuart Gordon is back in the director’s chair working from a book he co-penned with Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris. Mark Nutter provided the music and lyrics.
The blood-soaked musical enjoyed an original run in Los Angeles in 2011 (here’s an event report I penned at the time). The new production will see Graham Skipper and Jesse Merlin reprise their roles at Herbert West and Dr. Hill, respectively.
Blake Armstrong’s work captured my attention over the last week, first on Instagram when someone reposted one of his prints inspired by Joe Dante’s The ‘Burbs. And, recently, he’s been posting “a work in progress” shots of a Re-Animator print that’s truly dynamic, vivid and – without question – great. I want this.
His work evokes the master Drew Struzan and Armstrong has tackled Ghostbusters, Spaceballs and Guardians of the Galaxy. Armstrong’s site reveals he is self-taught and he has done some design work for the band In Flames.
