Night of the living dead-Live experience

Today I was invited by @LovePopUpsLondon to attend a live immersive experience of a remake of George A. Romero’s unparalleled 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, superbly adapted into an immersive stage performance.

The show is currently shown at the Pleasance Theatre in North London, running currently until 9th June 19. For booking please check here.

Myself and a few memebers of Love Pop Ups London kindly gifted premium seating to ensure the best experience possible which also meant that we were sat on stage and part of the splash zone. So before we entered the the auditorium we were given a protective boiler suit to help keep our clothing dry !

The premium seating are on stage and I totally recommend these as being only £5 more that the front roll seats these while not necessary but is totally worth it.

The show is split into two halves and the first part is very close to the movie itself..a little dark but great tension created and manages to keep us all at the edge of our seats. The second half is where the musical elements comes into play… Very much like groundhog Day…the scene replays itself until the best solution is agree..but can they?

As the movie was first aired in the late 1960’s a black and white theme is carried on throughout the show..being on stage I was able to see all the amazing makeup each character has possibly spent ages doing…

Oh did I mention that the stage was also called the splatter zone? If not then here it is… throughout the show..water mixed with charcoal may be splatter by any of the characters at any part of the show. So thought I give you a little warning ….

I had so much fun here and laughed till my cheeks hurt so make sure you are prepared to accept anything and nothing is impossible.

I would totally recommend this to any friends looking for a zombie style comedy…and if that’s your thing…what are you waiting for??
