Living Dead in Denmark

Some people know wine and cheese. I know zombie movies. And now—zombie theater. Qui Nguyen’s Living Dead in Denmark (through Sat., May 17) features local sketch-comedy troupe the Pork Filled Players in a post-apocalyptic, zombie-filled future. (Zombies and the future, they go together.) The Danes here attempt to fend off human extinction by enlisting their own zombie army: Shakespeare and his fiercest female creations, which of course include the totally bad-ass zombified Lady Macbeth. A battle ensues between well-read and well-fed zombies to determine who will rule Denmark. Let’s hope it’ll be made into a movie. Theatre Off Jackson, 409 Seventh Ave. S., 340-1049, www.theatreoffjackson.org. $13–$15. 8 p.m. ERIKA HOBART

May 15-17, 8 p.m., 2008
