With one of the most emotionally powerful books in musical-theater history and immortal songs like "If I Loved You," "June Is Bustin' Out All Over" and "You'll Never Walk Alone," it's easy to understand why Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Carousel" was named "Time" magazine's "Best Musical of the 20th Century."

Things go horribly awry, but years later Billy gets the chance to see his wife and the daughter he never knew. How Billy instills in both his child and her mother a sense of hope and dignity is a dramatic testimony to the power of love.

It's not every horror movie that would work as a musical, but then most horror movies don't have a hero who cuts off his own possessed hand, grafts on a chainsaw in its place and proceeds to wage war on his demon-ified friends.

You won't find any "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'"s in this production, but you will be treated to such soon-to-be-classic show tunes as "What the F**k Was That?" and "Ode to an Accidental Stabbing." Come "Do the Necronomicon" as "Evil Dead: The Musical" brings all the gonzo, over-the-top horror-comedy of the films splattering onto the stage of the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown.
