'Diamond Dead': Worth Repeating

By Stephanie Merry
Fringe Festival

Landless Theatre had quite the hit during last year's Fringe Festival with its musical about a zombie rock band. Lucky for us, the company's back with another installment: "Diamond Dead (Continued...)."

The performance has all the things fans loved last year, including great (if somewhat gross) songs like "Necrophilia," the star-crossed relationship between the living Aria DeWinter and zombie Dr. Diabolicus, plus a new wacky plot involving an undead Sarah Palin in a star-spangled bikini, and a gun-toting Carrie Prejean. I must say that 6 p.m. on a Wednesday is not the ideal time for this kind of show (especially when it's scorching hot outside and there's no AC in the Baldacchino), but that shouldn't be a problem at the next and last performance Saturday night.

After all, if Diamond Dead can get a post-work audience to its feet, sweatily swaying to the music, doesn't that say something about the quality of the performance? To quote the zombies' newest arch-nemesis: You betcha.
