COMBINED ARTFORM’S PICK OF THE FRINGE for 2017! Deep inside each human a Beast waits to be born—in claws, teeth and violence. Society represses it, terrified of any who succumb. Rebels embrace the edge of it, calling forth its power while avoiding its burn.

In an instant of survival, one woman will be transformed by it, split into two pieces—and the battle for control of her body, mind and soul will begin. Vengeance, violence and victimization will all become fuel for a battle of epic proportions. No one is safe from the slaughter to come.

“What happens when you take elements of “Grease”, “Pleasantville”, and even a movie such as “Haute Tension” and combine them? You get Nothing Bad: A Werewolf Rock Musical! This show was so much fun and was one of the shows I was most excited about seeing.” — Michael Fontaine, MyHauntLife

“a truly enjoyable performance drawing on everything that make Fringe Freaking Fantastic!”

“Super fun! The songs are still stuck in my head days later!”

“Super fun and campy and then unexpectedly moving.”

“While promoting itself simply as a rock n roll werewolf musical, the show tackles some surprisingly dark, complex subject matter. "

“I would definitely recommend it to fans of musical theater, comedy, and werewolves!”

“Nothing Bad” is the World-Premiere musical Written/Directed by Erik Blair with Music/Lyrics by Daniel Sugimoto (creator of the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Producers’ Encores Award Winning Broadway Noir). It’s a modern musical take on the classic werewolf story that blends the musical rock styles of the classic 1950’s and the glam 1980’s in a fast-paced, highly energized tale of the difference between who we appear to be on the surface and the darkness that dwells in the depths of our souls.

Expect to be surprised at every turn, as this is not The Wolf Man. There is no Twilight to be found here. This is a werewolf story that will bite hard and shake you back and forth in its teeth for a long time to come.
