The Saw Musical Parody Is Headed to Los Angeles in February

John Nguyen

The Saw films have been dark, deadly, and serious. However, Cooper Jordan (DEX! A Killer Musical, The Rat Pack Undead) has flipped the tone with a lighter, funnier project titled Saw the Musical: The Unauthorized Parody of Saw. It finished its New York run last year and has extended its shows Off-Broadway at AMT Theatre (345 West 45th Street) through June 23, 2024.

For those not in the New York area, the production is getting a national tour beginning in Los Angeles for a six-week run starting on February 29th at the Hudson Theatres Mainstage (6539 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90038).

After Los Angeles, it will be headed to the rest of the nation including San Diego, CA (Tenth Ave Arts Center, April 10 – 28, 2024), Las Vegas, NV (May 1 – 5, 2024), Portland, OR (Alberta Abbey, May 15 – Jun 9, 2024), Greely, CO (Union Colony Civic Center, June 2024), and Chicago, IL (Jul 26 – Aug 18, 2024).

“SAW The Musical: The Unauthorized Parody of Saw brings the iconic horror film to life on stage with a wickedly funny twist,” said creator and producer Cooper Jordan in a statement. “Now is the perfect time to laugh at the macabre as we blend horror and hair-raising laughter, creating a unique musical experience that’s both hilarious and thrilling. Get ready for a love story entangled in traps, secrets, and unexpected humor, pushing the boundaries of entertainment with a dash of explicit fun.”

About Saw the Musical

Synopsis: One of the most thought-provoking horror films of all time now is…a musical . SAW The Musical hilariously captures the events of the first movie, parodying the Saw that started it all, following from where Lawrence Gordon and Adam Stanheight find each other for the first time in the bathroom trap. Will they follow “the rules” as they discover each other’s secrets? Will they escape the game in time and saw right through? A love story with fluidity (and lots more fluids), SAW The Musical: The Unauthorized Parody of Saw is Little Shop of Horrors meets Avenue Q, pushing the boundary on sexuality and how to love.

The show is for mature audiences.
