Evil Dead The Musical, the show that has been taking over the Las Vegas Strip one bloody t-shirt at a time, has been nominated in 6 categories for the BroadwayWorld 2014 Awards.
“Last year we were excited to find that we’d been nominated in 5 categories, but this year we have been nominated in 6 categories which is amazing and humbling,” said producer and director Sirc Michaels. “Last year our show won Best Lead Performer in a musical, and we are excited to see how well we do this year. This is a chance for us to be put up against some of the biggest guns on the Strip. They’re in the flashier casinos, with the over-the-top budgets, but we have something that we find far more valuable – a legion of the best fans on the planet.”
And the production has set about mobilizing those fans. The winners of the Broadway World Awards are decided by public vote, and the cast and crew of EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL encourage everyone to take the time to make their voices heard.
