Blu-Ray Review: Great Release For ‘George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead’

Taking the concepts and the songs from a play that debuted in 1972, and featuring one of those original cast members in a key role, the National Touring revival of “Pippin” is being performed in Chicago at the Cadillac Theatre until August 9th, 2015.
