The Intergalactic Nemesis Suggested for ages 7+

"Something you must experience if you're a fan of awesome!" -- collider.com

"The plot was intelligent enough to be engaging, yet goofy enough to keep kids howling and adults chuckling." - LA Post

Everything cool these days seems to be coming out of Austin, Texas, and this show is the latest example. Telling an all-ages adventure story set in the 1930s, The Intergalactic Nemesis mashes up comic-book and radio-play formats into a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience, a new art form, the Live-Action Graphic Novel.

Three actors voice the dozens of characters, a Foley artist creates all the sound effects, and a pianist plays a cinematic score, while more than 1,250 individual full-color hi-res comic book panels tell a hilarious sci-fi adventure story visually from an enormous movie screen. And it's all done live in front of your eyes.

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 Intergalactic Nemesis has been featured on NPR, PBS, Conan O'Brien, the Wall Street Journal, and dozens of other outlets. The New York Post called its limited run on Broadway "Great fun! [A] happily retro multimedia extravaganza" and the Cleveland Examiner describes it as "pure theater magic."

If you've got an inner twelve-year-old (or an actual one living in your home) The Intergalactic Nemesis is one show you don't want to miss.
