Bruce Campbell Played An Integral Part In Getting 'The Evil Dead Musical' Off The Ground
Many Bruce fans out there have wondered what part Bruce played in getting The Evil Dead Musical off the ground and onto off-Broadway in New York. NY1 had an article today on the integral and active role that Bruce Campbell played in helping Ryan Howard (Musical Ash) and company turn The Evil Dead into a full fledged musical. Here is an excerpt:
"Bruce Campbell, as Ash, starred in the original film, putting his stamp on the testosterone-infused blood sweat and guts character, and lent in hand in getting the current musical off the ground. Actor Ryan Ward who plays Ash in the musical explains. “He actually originally helped us get the rights to do it in Canada,” says Ward. “He was integral with that – just trying to help out. And from there kept in contact and he said if it makes it to New York he'll come and he did a talk-back.” While for some it might be strange to envision singing and dancing demons on stage, for others, well, they feel right at home."
