Zombies in PA

Zombies Hit Pennsylvania:
Dancing, Dancing Came the Dead

From Times Leader:

Ah, springtime, when a young man’s thoughts turn to love. And zombies. Art. And zombies. A horror movie legend and a rock-n-roll icon.

Did I mention zombies?

If you think this isn’t quite the typical springtime flight of fancy, you’re right. If you also think that you just have to find out how love, zombies, Bela Lugosi and Elvis Presley come together to create one quirky romantic comedy, free up some time this weekend to catch “Dancing, Dancing Came the Dead” by local playwright K.K. Gordon under the direction of Paige Balitski.

Describing his play, Gordon says, “Paintings come to life and zombies run amok in ‘Dancing, Dancing Came the Dead,’ a dark romantic comedy that deals with the themes of art, love and courage.”

The play tells the tale of Paul, a filmmaker who is unable to cope with the death of his girlfriend, Nissa. Paul becomes a gravedigger to feel closer to his beloved and develops an unusual attachment to two paintings she created. The portraits of Elvis Presley and Bela Lugosi come to life, serving as the devil and angel on Paul’s shoulder, helping him come to terms with Nissa’s passing and deal with others around him that are still very much among the living.
