Zombie Joe's Underground Theatre

4850 Lankershim Blvd.
North Hollywood, CA 91601
Best Of
One of the few – if not the only – theaters dedicated to horror-themed plays, Zombie Joe’s in North Hollywood has a reliably excellent line-up of new and ongoing works. “Urban Death” explores blood, guts and drama in short vignettes; their Shakespearean adaptations are some of the best around. But be forewarned: This theater is not for the faint of heart.
