Hilariously go where no musical has gone before: combine the story of the original Nightmare on Elm Street movie with the music of ’90s boy band sensation Backstreet Boys for a night of nostalgic musical tingling. In this 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, if they die in their dreams, they die in real life.
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 and extended run. 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. The show was remounted again, to much success, in Chicago last February.
