Season five of The Walking Dead needs to be acted out on stage, in Ypsilanti


This is not a joke. I really want one of our local theater companies to act out season five of The Walking Dead for me. I don’t currently have the funds to commission such a production, but I would happily contribute a case of beer to anyone who could pull of a credible interpretation.

[warning: If no one steps up and accepts my challenge, I will be starting a series of $1.99 Kickstarter campaigns so that I can watch each episode on Google Play.]

    Walking Dead is the Big Bang Theory of the zombie genre

    Marisa Dluge, if you’re reading this, might season five of The Walking Dead be a good follow up to your troupe’s live action version of the Too Many Cooks?

    I’m in, but Carl should be a trouser role. It’s going to be a musical right?

    Bob, I’ve never seen the Big Bang Theory, so I don’t get the reference. Given your tone, though, my guess is that it sucks, and you feel as thought The Walking Dead is a piece of shit compared to other things out there in the genre. And maybe you’re right. I’m not up to date on the zombie genre. But, yeah, I’d take Dawn of the Dead over Walking Dead any day. With that said, though, I like the serial, soap opera-like nature of it.

    I know it would make for a boring show, but I don’t understand why they don’t just move to an island, or set up shop on a barge. Zombies can’t swim, can they?

    And, yes, J. E., Carl would be played by a woman, and there will definitely have to be musical numbers.

    My only stipulation is that Jesse Kranyak has to play Abraham Ford.
