GoreFest X: 28 Days Latte at the ImprovBoston in Central Square.  This is actually a musical comedy and it is showing from October 24 to October 31.  Per their site the new musical comedy is described as:

The Zombie Apocalypse is upon us, and a bunch of hipsters and two senior citizens are trapped inside a coffee place as they fight back the rampaging hordes. The show is dripping with tasteless dialog, juvenile humor, memorable music. Like every GoreFest, this year’s show features copious amounts of fake blood, gore and other bodily fluids, not all of which ends up on the actors.
