Zombie Seinfeld | Theater & Performance | Chicago Reader

Zombie Seinfeld Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries) Brief Run (Theater)

When: Fridays. Continues through June 28 2013

After the February release of a computer game called Organ Trail, spoofing the eight-bit classroom classic, you've got to wonder if there's anything left to zombify. Still, this Gorilla Tango parody gives the gimmick the Seinfeld treatment, creating a world in which a zombie plague is just another background Manhattan inconvenience, like traffic. Writer Pete Mandra has a solid command of the sitcom's signature multinarrative structure: while Jerry seeks the zombie vaccine from a coy girlfriend, George schemes to get out of work by pretending to be infected, Kramer builds a zombie shelter, and Elaine tries to convince Peterman that her boyfriend isn't a zombie, but simply Puddy. Director Jeremy M. Eden's cast get the characters' quirks down pat. —Keith Griffith
