While horror and blood-soaked mayhem tend to be the calling card for North Hollywood’s premiere horror theater group, Zombie Joe’s Underground is taking a break from their regularly scheduled mischief to make way for a special engagement by composer Christopher Reiner
Here is a piece of their press release:
Zombie Joe’s Underground Theatre Group Proudly Presents a rare and magical late-afternoon performance of music and prose from The Underground’s very own Christopher Reiner, who has composed music and songs for 23 productions with ZJU in Los Angeles, off-Broadway, and Cape Town, including Urban Death, Alice, Tell-Tale Heart, and Nightmare’s Trio. Mr. Reiner is author of three books of poetry and prose, most recently, I Want Nothing But You In The World (Spuyten Duyvil 2016), and his writing has appeared in many journals and anthologies. His video – The Man Who Ate a Car, was selected for the L.A. Freewaves Festival and is available on YouTube. “Reiner is a master lyricist . . . his rhythmic imagery and narrative drive are hallmarks of each song.” –Backstage West. Directed by Zombie Joe. For Ages 13 and Up.
A late afternoon filled with music from some of the most memorable ZJU shows sounds delightful. To hear the man who composed them play the tunes, along with stories and you’ve got one hell of an evening.
Shows run on January 8, 15, and 22 at 4 PM. Tickets are available now online at the Zombie Joe’s website.
