Re-Animator The Musical

The Steve Allen Theater Buy Tickets to Re-Animator the Musical!


Variety (Bob Verini 3/09/2011)

For the month of March, Hollywood's happening place will the front rows of the Steve Allen Theater, where the cheeky, cheesy "Re-Animator: The Musical" elicits cheers with each spurt of blood and gore making its way over the footlights. Little protection is offered by management's complimentary trash-bag ponchos, but no one cares, and those out of harm's way may even get a little jealous. Not since "Little Shop of Horrors" has a screamfest tuner so deftly balanced seriousness and camp.

Curve wire (RS Bailey 3/16/2011)

Meg, beautifully portrayed by Rachel Avery, mistrusts Herbert entirely and is the sexy moral compass for the piece. The entire cast of "Re-animator" shines; from Rachel Avery's beautifully lilting voice, to George Wendt's show stopping solo as a zombie.

LA Times (David C. Nichols 3/26/2007)

An amorous foil around Matt Letscher's delightful rou – Avery makes a pert subject of hypnosis.


Review   (Jose Ruiz 3/27/2007)

You have to see this. It’s a riot! Rachel Avery starts the beauty pageant, playing young Cora, a lovely innocent suspected of infidelity.  We never know if she did or didn’t, but after meeting Anatol, we can’t blame her if she did.

VENTURA STAR (Rita Moran 6/20/2006)

Avery's Donna is well defined as a girl adrift from what should be her moorings, left to fend for herself in the easiest and least rewarding ways

BACKSTAGE WEST (Madeleine Shaner 06/16/2005)

“The play is much deeper than the kitchen sink that is at its center, and it tears painfully at the heart; The cast is extraordinary.Avery makes our senses ache with admiration for her character's sweet contentment and amiability


LA WEEKLY (Deborah Klugman 06/16/2005)

Rachel Avery as Warren’s attractive girlfriend/then wife, renders a carefully crafted portrait of a desperately unhappy woman and her family. Foote gets high marks for dramatizing the inner lives of women”


LA TIMES (F.K.F 06/17/2005)

"Self-effacing and unpretentious, the actors give the kind of no-frills, straightforward performances that should be studied in master acting classes."
