A sinfully good time. Exorcistic took an iconic curse horror movie and made fun of it, and hollywood. All while maintaining the edge of rock and roll, and a tinge of horror.

I came to see the show because I'm friends with several of the cast members, having fallen in love with them in last year's production of Doomsday Cabaret. That being said this is a totally different animal.
The cast of this show were incredible, especially Laura Sperrazza and Anna Bowen - those two can SING!
Loved the story and the way the company approached it. It came across perfectly.

A rock musical retelling of The Exorcist. It's ALSO about the theater troupe putting ON the rock musical retelling of The Exorcist; this makes it overlong and overcomplicated, and I wish that angle had been cut entirely.

It's a good time. fringeblog.webs.com

When Michael Shaw Fisher walks out to introduce Exorcistic at its Fringe Mainstage home, it takes a few minutes before you realize that the musical has actually begun. Already knee deep in the show-within-a-show concept, he explains that this is a workshop presentation of his world premiere rock musical as backstage business becomes part of the onstage action.
Over the next 80 minutes the show will progress from The Staged Reading to The Fringe to The Pantages as a theatre company mounts a musical parody production of The Exorcist and unwittingly unleashes a demonic force that takes over and leads them through an Exorcist-inspired series of deadly events.
Book, music & lyrics are by Fisher and the show features a 70s rock score, full ...
