PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE to Open 9/27 at Maverick Theater

Ed Wood's 1959 film Plan 9 From Outer Space has often been called the worst movie ever made. With its incoherent plot, jaw-droppingly odd dialogue, inept acting, threadbare production design, and special effects so shoddy that they border on the surreal. Plan 9 From Outer Space is an oddly endearing disaster; boasting genuine enthusiasm and undeniable charm, it is the work of people who loved movies and loved making them, even if they displayed little visible talent. -Rotten

Yep, that's what we're doing on stage. The producer promises the hour long show will have even worst special effects than the movie, if that's possible.
