Book, Music and Lyrics by Jordan Wolfe

Based on the feature film Night of the Living Dead by George A. Romero & John A. Russo

In the beginning of 2019, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD! THE MUSICAL! had a hit Off-Broadway run at New York's Kirk Theatre at Theatre Row. The cast was lead by TV's SMASH alum Jaime Cepero, and also featured Broadway's Michelle Dowdy, Michael Buchanan, Susan J. Jacks, as well as Meg Lanzarone and the show's creator, Jordan Wolfe. Mitchell Walker of RAAC served as director/choreographer.

The Off-Broadway premiere sold out most of its run and received universally rave reviews, enticing theatre fans and horror fans alike!

The show's Off-Broadway transfer came after a sold-out Halloween concert premiere event at Don't Tell Mama. Developmental readings were held at the Rusty Anchor Acting Company (RAAC).

Written in three days and filmed on a shoe string budget, Night of the Living Dead was a $30 million smash when it premiered in 1968, becoming the first indie film to hit major box office success. The movie has earned critical acclaim and remains a cult classic. Still extremely popular today, it’s the Internet Archive's most downloaded film with over 3 million downloads.

​With Night of the Living Dead, writer/director George Romero invented our modern conception of the zombie, a horror movie game changer. It also took on cultural significance as the first horror movie to star an African American actor as its hero. Night of the Living Dead returned to movie theaters across the US in 2018 in celebration of its 50th anniversary. Never copyrighted, the movie is one of of the most famous titles in the Public Domain.
