In Zombie Broadway, the human population of

The acting mayor (the others have been eaten or killed) of New York has convinced the President to try taming the Zombies through theater before the ultimate resolution of dropping a nuclear bomb on the city. The story of "Zombie Broadway" takes the form of an ensemble black comedy, full of violence and humor.

Recently, Virgin and Stewart began a Zombie Broadway Karaoke contest via Youtube where contestants send videos of themselves singing the title song from the planned Broadway adaptation. [ [http://youtube.com/watch?v=uvHD08sGr04 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself ] ]
