The Las Vegas Comic Expo was held this past weekend and the cast and crew of “Evil Dead: The Musical” was out in force to meet fans, talk about the show, and discuss everything zombie.

Saturday morning saw a panel entitled “Zombies and Pop Culture” which featured the cast and producer Sirc Michaels talking about the evolution of zombies in film, television and print.

Michaels gave a nice history of the appearance of zombies in films before talking about the “Evil Dead” trilogy.  A Q&A session followed with audience members debating if fast or slow zombies were better and asking questions about programs such as “The Walking Dead” and films such as the “Evil Dead” remake.

The cast, which included Ben Stobber (Ash), Lorie Palkow (Cheryl), Kolton Rostron (Ed) and Greg Korin (Jake), spoke about their show, which is currently playing on Friday and Saturday nights at Planet Hollywood Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.  The Las Vegas production is the longest-running production of the musical and has been running since 2011 and at Planet Hollywood since 2012.  The show is an interactive production which features a “Splatter Zone” in which fans are given a commemorative t-shirt and sprayed with blood at various points throughout the show.  Those who want a little less interaction can choose to sit in the VIP or General Admission sections and still be close enough to feel a part of a show – without all of the blood.

The cast also had a booth at the Las Vegas Comic Expo where fans could meet the characters and have photos taken of themselves with Ash and the gang.

Producer Sirc Michaels also surprised panel attendees with free tickets to the show so they could come and check out all of the “groovy” fun for themselves.
