Empire Arts Staging Buffy The Vampire Slayer Musical 'Once More With Feeling'

If you’re a super fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, there’s a good chance you’ve sung “They got the mustard out!” at least once while doing laundry.

Even though the iconic teen show ended in 2003, Buffy’s popularity continues to grow, inspiring comic books, fan fiction and even a live staged show of “Once More With Feeling,” the season six musical episode that turned mundane stains into musical poetry.

Empire Arts Collective is staging “Once More With Feeling” this weekend and next at the Geery Theater in Sacramento. Jessilee Windhaus and Emily Perez with Empire Arts Collective explain the enduring popularity of Buffy and why they got involved in the production.
