Famished: a Victorian Zombie Musical

 

Review


In Famished! A Victorian Zombie Musical, a "horde of the unholy" descends upon London and bursts into song—with a choreographed zombie shuffle, of course. Originally produced by Brits for the Edinburgh Fringe, Famished is reborn for this year's festival by a local company. While few of the songs are as catchy as you’d hope, the exuberant ensemble brings warmth, raunch and slapstick to the cold, dead characters they inhabit. The show is rife with dry wit and Victorian gags, complete with egocentric colonists and pompous bourgeoisie. The production isn’t flawless, but the script’s dry wit and sidesplitting plot resolution make Famished satisfying for even the most skeptical attendee. —Paige Gorsak
