THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS Flies into Marcus Center's Vogel Hall Tonight
The hit Off Broadway show, The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel, makes its Milwaukee premiere tonight, October 18-19.
When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out. Shortly thereafter, it was featured on NPR and Conan O'Brien. Now, in its third touring season, the production hits 40 venues around the US, UK, and Canada, including a run at the New Victory Theatre on Broadway. This one-of-a-kind all-ages show is not to be missed.
The premise is simple: a period adventure story (with no small share of laughs) featuring Pulitzer-winning reporter Molly Sloan, her intrepid assistant Timmy Mendez, and a mysterious librarian named Ben Wilcott as they face the most serious threat Earth has ever known: an impending invasion of sludge monsters from the planet Zygon.
The telling is what makes the experience of The Intergalactic Nemesis so incredibly unique: while three actors, one Foley artist, and one keyboardist perform all the voices, sound effects and music, more than 1,000 hand-drawn, full-color, hi-rez, blow-your-mind comic-book images blast from the screen, all performed LIVE.
"In 20 years of directing and producing plays, I've never seen an audience respond so positively," says project creator Jason Neulander.
