So, I’ve got to do a bit of shameless self-promotion here, but I think this something that will interest the local horror community in Chicago. Yours truly is directing a stage show at the Gorilla Tango Theater that combines my love of horror with some of the best local improv talent. I would love to introduce you to ASSAULT ON THE GRINDHOUSE.
Assault on the Grindhouse is an interactive horror comedy improv experience like you’ve never seen before. For nine weeks, we will be taking a classic horror or cult film and reinventing it with some supremely talented improv artists. It’s part What’s Up Tiger Lily and part Rocky Horror as we take nine different B-movies and recreate them as the films screen behind our actors and a foley artist/musician who will be rebuilding the entire film as you see it screen behind them.
Think of it as a variety show for your favorite cult movies. First up will be a re-imagining of the 1936 drug scare film REEFER MADNESS on April 20th at 8pm. Assault on the Grindhouse will then run Thursdays for the next 8 weeks at Gorilla Tango starting on May 11th at 9:30pm with a different film screening each week.
