George Reinblatt is the writer of the book, lyrics, and co-writer of the music for the hit show Evil Dead The Musical.  

Evil Dead The Musical debuted Off-Broadway in New York City in October, 2006 at the New World Stages.  After running for 5 months, the production quickly moved to Toronto where it ran for over 400 performances, making it the longest running Canadian show in Toronto in two decades.   

Since then, the show has launched over 300 productions all over the world.  Including, four runs in Korea.  A successful stint in Tokyo.  And an extended run in Madrid, Spain.

And if that wasn't enough, Evil Dead is still touring North America - so look for it soon in a city near you.
