Deadly Class Struggles to “Rise Above” as It Becomes an “I Against I” Battle

There’s a point in a freshman show where everything feels like a rush towards the final confrontation. It’s like cresting the first hill of a rollercoaster.

Deadly Class Prays a Hail Maria In “Stigmata Martyr”

Okay, I’ve been a bit slow (and I’m thoroughly embarrassed now) but I’ll admit that I only JUST realized that every episode of Deadly Class has had a song title as its title. My bad. This was a hard follow-up to the psychedelic Vegas road show that was “Saudade” where Chester […]

Deadly Class Competition Turns into a “Snake Pit”

The 1980s was the hey day of the high school dance drama and Deadly Class really uses the well-known setting to its max potential with King’s Dominion’s annual “Sleeping With the Fishes” Legacy-only dance. It comes in shades of Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Heathers, and even Carrie. The cliques come into play, especially as […]
