"A tight web of raucous one-liners, clever and emotional lyrics, and keen insight...this musical is bloody good fun."

2017 Premier Premieres! A Festival of New Musicals WINNER!
Stumble into the pastel stacks of the Young Adult section of your local bookstore and you’ll immediately see there’s a couple things the Youths can’t get enough of: love in triangular form, dystopias formed around poorly conceived personality quizzes, and MONSTERS. Sexy, sexy, monsters. The Trouble With Dead Boyfriends is a gory, feminist musical comedy aimed at the sexy monster loving teen we all keep buried in our hearts and middle school journals. It explores the lives of Stella, Grace, and Madison, three BFFs who have snagged the monster men of their dreams as dates for their Senior Prom. But when your dream man is a literal monster things can become ... nightmarish. If the girls don’t do something quick Prom may take a turn for the Carrie and end up more Pretty in Red than Pretty In Pink.
