She’ll Suck You Dry

From the team that brought Maul of the Dead and Night of the Living Dead to the Kansas City stage comes Sorority House of the Dead, another undead youth production. To quote playwright Mitch Brian’s comments in the press release, “This year’s play plunges us into the gaudy, glamorous and grotesque 1980s while resurrecting the perennially popular (and truly undead) vampire tale.” Lately, vampires and ’80s revivals have saturated popular culture. Director Ron Megee promises that these vampires are “more violent than Twilight” and “campier than Dracula.” This production of the Coterie at Night Series opened Thursday and runs through Halloween at the Living Room (1818 McGee). Tickets cost $12 for all ages ($9 for season-ticket holders). For additional dates and times or to purchase tickets, see coterietheatre.org or call the box office at 816-474-6552.— Chance Dibben
