Night of the Living Dead Marks the First of Coterie at Night Series
When the zombie film Night of the Living Dead was released in 1968, it was harshly criticized for its graphic and bloody content. But in later years, its influence led to its registration with the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. (photos by J. Robert Schraeder/Coterie Theatre)
Kansas City, MO – The zombie story is now a stage play and, as KCUR's Steve Walker reports, the perfect vehicle for launching the Coterie Theatre's expanded outreach to teenagers and young adults. "Flesh-eating zombies menace the Coterie audience and terrorize seven people trapped in an isolated farmhouse in the return of Night of the Living Dead" at Off Center Theatre, on the third floor of Crown Center Shops, October 9 - 29. Directed by Ron Megee, it's the first in the Coterie Theatre's Coterie at Night series that brings evening-only performances to older audiences.
