DETAILED SHOW SYNOPSIS (characters, scenarios, story arc): A Nightmare on Backstreet hilariously goes where no musical has gone before: it combines the story of the original Nightmare on Elm Street movie with the music of ’90s boy band sensation Backstreet Boys. In this new live action horror parody, the teenagers of Backstreet are all having devilish nightmares about the same guy, Teddy Crooner. And no matter how distracted they get by all the ’90s boy band singing and dancing, just like in Nightmare on Elm Street, if they die in their dreams, they die in real life. A Nightmare on Backstreet combines ’90s nostalgia and classic horror tropes to make a musical parody not to be missed.
weAREproductions has produced other recent musical hits at The Public House, including most recently, Maul Santa, Babysitter Massacre ’78: The Musical, and BATES: An 80’s Psycho Musical Parody.
A Nightmare on Backstreet: A Boy Band Musical Parody, made its premiere at The Public House in Chicago, in the Fall of 2014, to a completely sold-out run (shows had to be added to meet audience demand). Due to the success of the initial run, Millikin University’s Pipe Dreams Studio, mounted a well received run of the show in Decatur, Illinois in the Fall of 2015, making the show’s collegiate premiere.
