Baltimore Rock Opera Society turns to ‘pure B-horror’ for its latest original production, ‘Incredibly Dead!’
Having previously acted in two Baltimore Rock Opera Society shows,”Incredibly Dead!” co-director Mike Ziccardi was familiar with the ensemble’s costume design and decorating prowess when he and his co-creators unveiled the gore-filled script. Even so, he worried that it might be difficult to simulate dismemberment in front of a live audience.
He was happy to be proven wrong.
“It was show-ready,” he says, describing the moment when gore designer Amanda Boutwell showed him how they could replicate limb-separation on-stage. In fact, the combination of costumes, props and replica blood “looks exactly like it did when we talked about it a year ago,” Ziccardi says.
