COMPATIBILITY, AN 8 BIT MUSICAL Set for the Lowndes Orlando Shakespeare Center, 4/18
COMPATIBILITY, AN 8 BIT MUSICAL, written by Orlando native Daniel Kaplan, will premiere on April 18th. The show is currently scheduled to be performed at the Lowndes Orlando Shakespeare Center from April 18-21 at 7:30p.m.
The story is about Mary, a wannabe sci-fi writer stuck working in a electronics repair store with a duo of crazy characters. There's Jenny, whose obsessed with become an internet video meme, and
Fitzwilliam whose long hours of adventure RPG playing have trapped his mind into speaking a third-first-person faux Shakespearean dialect. When Chris, a sci-fi writer who Mary can't stand due to his sloppy science writing, leaves his laptop to be repaired, she decides to make a few changes. Her newly revised version becomes an overnight sensation and the two must learn how to work together.
The show is filled with more than a dozen original songs that take their cue from classic Nintendo 8 bit video game soundtracks.
