THE INTERGALACTIC NEMESIS is an hilarious, uplifting adventure of heroes-by-circumstance overcoming impossible odds.
This period-sci-fi-horror-suspense-comedy-romance is presented in a whole new format: 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.
The year is 1933. 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.
When The Intergalactic Nemesis Live-Action Graphic Novel premiered in 2010, more than 2,100 people turned out. Now, in its inaugural touring season, the production hits 24 venues around the country. This one-of-a-kind all-ages show is not to be missed.
“In 20 years of directing and producing plays, I’ve never seen an audience respond so positively,” says project creator Jason Neulander.
This show is appropriate for all ages.Running time: 120 min including one intermission.
